Short Story News: Judy Penz Sheluk

Live Free or Tri: A Collection of Three Short Mystery Stories (mystery)

Death and Deception
Appearances are often deceiving and that is the underlying premise in this collection of short crime fiction:
In “Live Free or Die,” naive 21-year-old Emmy falls hard for 31-year-old Jack, an efficiency expert from New Hampshire who is not all that he seems. 
In “Murder in the Marsh,” cyclist Carrie Anne Camack discovers more than she bargained for in the fertile farmlands of Ontario’s Holland Marsh. 
In the final story, “The Cycopaths,” a triathlon team’s open-water swim training in Collingwood, Ontario, has deadly consequences. 

Why did you write this story? Each story in this collection is inspired by real-life events (without the murder, of course). I “was” Emmy with a “Jack” in my life, I cycled in the Holland Marsh while learning to use cllpless pedals, and I went to a triathlon swim camp where the competition was fierce.

I love Judy's work, and appreciate all the support she gives other writers. I'll have to look into this book.
