Each of the collection’s nineteen short stories is a sinister treat. Like a hidden candy stash, I found myself wanting to scarf these tales down — just one more! — when I probably should have washed the dishes or answered emails. Oh, sweet twisted deliciousness! -- The Gabber Our first signing at Books at Park Place went well. Our second signing will be at The Island Bookshop in Venice, Florida from 6 - 7:30 PM. ​Paradise is Deadly is available in both print and Kindle format!

Due to Weebly's decision to discontinue offering free sites attached to custom domains, we (the partners at MAHLLC) have updated our author web addresses. I'm expecting a lot of broken connections while we get caught up. The new site addresses should be: ​https://sarah-e-glenn.weebly.com https://gwenmayo.weebly.com The catching up will be its own special fun, and I will work on it between frequent impulses to scream. Not sure if the lady in the pic is supposed to be in water, milk, or glue, but I'm betting on glue. Stock photo. We have no tub ..read more

I'd say it was hard to believe it has been so long since my last post, but that would be lying. We've been terribly busy with personal issues, mostly connected with our families. It has been an emotionally and physically exhausting time. On a slightly better note, we also had an American wedding in May, which we hope will better preserve our rights if the Supreme Court or Congress turns against us. Despite the above issues, we did succeed in getting Strangely Funny IX published. It's available in print and Kindle from Amazon, and features stories from the usual suspects plus some newcomers. B ..read more

What We've Been Up To

Last year, and this year, have been busier than usual. My mother's health has taken a turn for the worse, and we have been tied up with her needs. If you really want the gory details about it, you can look at the blog post on my personal site. We had to turn down several submissions of novels and story collections because we could not devote the time that they would involve. The good news is that we are still plugging away at projects in between the blocks of time we must devote to my mother's needs and concerns. Sort of like grout. Late this spring, we will publish this year's Strangely Funn ..read more

We joined our local chapter of Sisters in Crime at the Ponce Library in Pinellas Park yesterday for a panel on mysteries. It was a good opportunity to introduce ourselves and some of our products to potential new readers. The only book on the table we didn't publish was Hoosier Hoops and Hijinks, but Gwen and I did have a Three Snowbirds story in it. This was the first appearance in what we hope will be a better year for in-person sales for ourselves and our authors.

Gwen Mayo and I had the pleasure of returning to Kentucky for the Kentucky Book Festival on November 6th. We saw family and friends, along with our comrades in writing from the Derby Rotten Scoundrels chapter of Sisters in Crime. You can see their account of the festival here. The reception before the event was hosted by Campbellsville College and featured many of the leading lights in Kentucky literature.  The day of the festival, our corner of the room was very busy! Many fellow authors and bourbon fans stopped by to chat and pick up a copy of Mystery with a Splash of Bourbon, signed b ..read more

Gareth Barsby: The Milkman
Mystery and Horror Blog

Many people say my line of work is an old-fashioned one, but I suppose that’s part of the “charm,” really. People are still nostalgic for the image of the sleepy little suburban house with flowers on the windowsill and a bottle of milk on the doorstep. That, however, doesn’t explain one of my frequent stops. Every morning, I drive to these steps, where I find two empty bottles and payment for the last morning’s milk. I collect them before placing two milk bottles on the last step before the staircase of concrete enters the sea. I sometimes tell myself work is work and I shouldn’t question the ..read more
