Scene of the Crime

On Monday, January 30th, Portland Stage is doing something pretty cool: they're putting on staged readings of works from several local crime writers. The folks they've invited to participate are a talented bunch. Gerry Boyle. Brenda Buchanan. Paul Doiron. Julia Spencer-Fleming. And, uh, yours truly.

They asked us each for several excerpts from our novels that might play well on stage. I couldn't resist sending along a couple short stories too. I thought it'd be a kick to see one performed in its entirety. Apparently, the fine folks at Portland Stage agreed, because in addition to killer excerpts from Gerry, Brenda, Paul, and Julia, they'll be tackling my darkly comic short "Eight Pounds," which first appeared in Thuglit in '09.

The event is open to the public and pay-what-you-can (I understand $10 is pretty standard). A complimentary wine and beer reception kicks off at 6:30PM. Performances begin at 7:00PM. If you'd like more details, you can check out the event page here. Hope to see you there!

EDITED TO ADD: Bob Keyes was kind enough to write a piece highlighting this event for Maine Today. You can read it here.

Auld List Syne

As 2016 draws mercifully to a close, I bring thee links to three new lists on which RED RIGHT HAND appears.
My thanks to Jenn, Ayo, and Alex. And to everybody reading this, best wishes for the coming year. 2016 was tough for many, but—like any year—it had its shining moments. Here's hoping 2017 has a whole bunch more of 'em and eases way up on the hardship. Catch you on the flipside*.

*Nope. Can't pull that phrase off. Eh. Next year, maybe.
