Killer Women Crime Anthology: Finalist #Audies2017

Killer Women Crime Club Anthology Audie FinalistI'm delighted that the Killer Women Crime Anthology has just been announced by the LA Review of Books as a finalist in the Short Stories Award in the Audies - the Oscars for audiobooks.

The awards ceremony will be held in New York, 1st June.

Blade-sharp and pared to the bone, these original stories by best-selling, award-winning female crime writers will lure you to the dark side. Fifteen perfectly twisted tales with a measure of evil, a dash of horror, and a dose of humour. Expect the unexpected....

Authors: Louise Millar, Alex Marwood, Tammy Cohen, Melanie McGrath, Colette McBeth, Jane Casey, Erin Kelly, Sarah Hilary, Louise Voss, Alison Joseph, Helen Smith, Kate Medina, D. E. Meredith, Laura Wilson and Kate Rhodes.

Narrators: Clare Corbett, Adjoa Andoh, Rache Atkins and Carl Prekopp.

My story is a new Emily Castles mystery called The Secret Ingredient:
When amateur sleuth Emily Castles and her friend Dr. Muriel meet Gareth Crabbe, newly-appointed poet-in-residence at Brixton’s windmill, he reveals that an intruder has been breaking in at night. While Emily and Dr. Muriel try to discover the identity of the intruder, Gareth must find the inspiration to write a poem, or funding for his residency will be withdrawn and the Gala Open Day at the windmill will be ruined.
