My deadline is rushing ever closer, so I'm just going to post links to three free mystery short stories. I wrote these for anthologies, two of which were published and the third never came to fruition. They're available for download in a variety of formats.
The published ones are both Daisy Dalrymple mysteries, set in London in the 1920s, featuring the main character of my 20-book series (it's the deadline of #21 that is almost upon me).
STORM IN A TEA SHOPPE: Daisy and her friend Lucy go out to lunch and find themselves in the soup...
UNHAPPY MEDIUM: A seance takes a deadly turn:
The third story is set in 1830, at the opening of the first public passenger railway in the world, from Liverpool to Manchester. It's closely based on the real event, but my elderly sleuth, Miss Primrose, discovers that the accidental death of the local Member of Parliament was no accident:
MISS PRIMROSE AND THE MARCH OF PROGRESS
