(Carrick Publishing, Fall 2014)

Today’s featured author, Jane Petersen Burfield, won the Bony Pete Short Story Award in 2001 for Slow Death and Taxes, the first short story she wrote. After several more years of success with the Bloody Words story contest, she decided writing was a misery-making but delightful challenge. She has had short stories published in Blood on the Holly and Bloody Words, the Anthology. The Mesdames of Mayhem were honored to include her delightful story, Triskaidekaphobia, in THIRTEEN(Carrick Publishing, 2013).

Bianca Marais is a South African who moved to Toronto in 2012. She has great aspirations of: writing great books, training her Golden Retriever to poop directly into the lemon-scented bags from PetSmart, and finding out once and for all what the plural of “moose” is. Also, she was once bitten by a giraffe. True story.

She is also a great writer. A really, really great writer. As you will see, when her story The Savages Among Us appears in our WORLD ENOUGH AND CRIME anthology this Fall. Here’s a taste of what’s in store:
