My 2019 Anthony Award-eligible short story, “The Best Laid Plans,” will be available to read for free for a limited time.
Set in 1948, “The Best Laid Plans” is about Bev Marshall, the driver in a criminal gang run by her boyfriend, Joe Scullion. The crew makes a good living burglarizing affluent neighborhoods on the eastern seaboard, but when Bev learns of Joe’s recent infidelity, she decides she’s through with him and the crew. She comes up with a plan to make sure this job will be her last. The story opens with Bev’s foot on the gas pedal, ready to make a break for it.
Thanks for reading!
