I've been very fortunate to see my stories appear in many issues of the Fiction River anthology series. Fiction River: Editor Saves, however, marks the first issue to include two of my stories. "City of Sin Strangler" is a suspenseful, crime story set in "Lynn, Lynn, the City of Sin," while "Makonde: Tree of Life" is a fantasy that splits time between Africa and a retirement home.
