My first short story was published in the
In the June 1996 issue of Murderous Intent mystery magazine based in Vancouver, Washington, I published a mystery short story called "Murder in the Abbey," based on the adventures of a series character, a Canadian wine critic living in Paris, named Dan Bacchus. The story was nominated for the 1997 Arthur Ellis Award for Best Short Story.
My short story, "Ulysses Induced," appeared in the Summer 1999 issue of Murderous Intent – although it is not a crime story at all.
Along with Freddy Michalski, France’s leading translator for crime fiction (especially known for his translations of James Ellroy) I translated from French to English a short story by Jean-Hugues Oppel, called, “A Demon in My Head,” published in Death by Espionage, ed. Martin Cruz Smith, Cumberland House 1999.
I have also translated from French to English three short stories by Marc Villard, one of France’s other top crime writers, and master of the short story.
