Not So Cozy by Daryl


"Life is a mystery; savor every moment."
   —Daryl

Lots of mystery authors write more than one genre, or what some say across genre. I hope to be published in the suspense/thriller field soon and possibly even womens fiction. When I do, you'll learn about it here!

In the meantime, I'd like to share a few short stories with you. Free! Some have been nominated for awards. Some have been published in anthologies and magazines. Some are simply here, on this website, for your reading pleasure. Warning: not all are cozy. A few are dark, but only in a thriller-ish way. Note: you will never find me hurting children or animals. I mention which tone before you begin the first sentence.

Tasty: mild
Zesty: medium
Dangerous: speaks for itself

Enjoy!
