Needle Magazine - Spring 2014

Needle

The latest issue of NEEDLE: A Magazine of Noir is now available. Featuring crime fiction from some of the best -- Heath Lowrance, Rob W. Hart, Patti Abbott, Taylor Brown, Jen Conley, Stephen D. Rogers, Court Merrigan, Sandra Seamans, Trent England, Christopher Irvin, William Boyle, William Dylan Powell, and Tom Joyce. Cover art by Scott Morse.

My story, "Union Man," is my favorite story that I've written. It's a story I wrote when my son was around ten months old - a story I'm not sure I could have written without the experience of being a father. I had the chance to read a short snippet last November at the Noir at the Bar 'panel' at Bouchercon.

I hope you'll pick up a copy - not only for my story, but for the powerhouse lineup featured in this issue. It's guaranteed to be a knock out.
