My story, "Finn's Missing Sister," published in Needle, was shortlisted for the Best American Mystery Awards this year. It's pretty cool being in the same column as Lee Child.
The story is about Bobby Kovacki, a loner, who runs into an old high school friend, the derelict Pete Finn. Pete's sister has recently gone missing and he asks Bobby to go look for her.
You can find the story in this issue of Needle: http://www.lulu.com/shop/steve-weddle/needle-magazine-winter-2012/paperback/product-20019166.html;jsessionid=C75A954A2C75D69DAD31F304AF2BDE51
Steve Weddle, editor and publisher of Needle, says some kinds words about the story in this blogpost. Thanks Steve!
