I write Suburban Noir fiction. I'm the author of the novel, "The Demise Of The Soccer Moms". My short stories have appeared in Alfred Hitchcock's Mystery Magazine, Ellery Queen's Mystery Magazine and in the eZine, EveryDayFiction.
. Ruth R. is one of a few writers whose books I can read multiple times.
Absolutely! I've read everything she's written, including marvelous short stories. I recently started re-reading "Brimstone Wedding," but have put it aside to read some other things. Short stories are a good way to start writing, I think. Many fine crime writers have excellent short stories. Good luck to you!
Hi Cathryn, I see from your profile that we like a number of the same authors and films!
As you may know from my posts I'm a "huge" Ruth Rendell fan. I also like Highsmith--talk about getting "inside" the mind of a psychopath. And I think Fargo is perhaps the best suspense film since anything Hitchcock!
I look forward to checking out your books.
