Old Growth

Mystery Sid Rafferty Matt Hughes War in the Woods Vancouver Island old growth

In 1997, I had a mystery novel out from Doubleday Canada, Downshift, that was ill-fated. The editor who wanted the book had to win a five-month argument with the marketing department. Then she left to go to another publisher three months before the novel’s release. Not good. Old Growth would have been the sequel.

Muscle

Published Jul 1, 2019 · 12,362 words (45 minutes) · 122 views

Humor Mystery

This story that ran in Alfred Hitchcock’s, fifteen years ago. “Muscle” is, in my biased opinion, pretty cute. I think it would make a good movie, with Bette Midler, Goldie Hawn, and Joan Cusack in the cast – and Emma Thompson, if they could get her to play the lead.
