“Death in the Serengeti” selected for Best American Mystery Stories!

“Death in the Serengeti” has been selected for Best American Mystery Stories 2018!

When I first began writing, I dreamed of one of my stories someday appearing in a Year’s Best anthology. It seemed impossible, but this fall that impossible dream will come true! I’ve been reading Otto Penzler’s Best American Mystery Stories for decades; this year’s edition will include “Death in the Serengeti.”

As detailed in this announcement, Penzler and his staff read over 3,000 stories to narrow down the choices to the top fifty. Guest editor Louise Penny then selected the final twenty choices.

I am gobsmacked!
