Two stories announced as Derringer Award finalists

Not one but two of my stories are Derringer Award finalists! “Death in the Serengeti” is a finalist in the Long Story category; “The Kids Keep Coming” is a finalist in the Short Story category. The Derringers are awarded by the Short Mystery Fiction Society and are presented at Bouchercon, the World Mystery Convention.

It is such an honor to have a single finalist for this prestigious award, let alone two. I am officially gobsmacked.
