I'm a big fan of podcasts. Thanks to the likes of Radiolab and The Dead Authors Podcast, folding laundry and doing the dishes has never been more fun. (It's still not actually fun, mind you, but at least it's more fun than it used to be.)
So it's always neat for me when something of mine pops up in a podcast. If just one pot gets the thorough scrubbing it so desperately needs because I helped entertain the scrubber, then my work as a writer is done. (Another parenthetical clarification: This is entirely untrue. My work as a writer is done when I get paid.)
My latest podcast appearance is in Crime City Central #72, which features a reading of my story "Blarney." Want to know why I don't go to writers' conventions anymore? Here's the 100% true answer! (Margin of error: 99%.)
If you enjoy listening to "Blarney" -- or just have a lot of pots to scrub -- here are the other places you can go for free audio versions of my stories:
*My Christmas crime story "Fruitcake" can be found here.
*My Christmas crime story "Hidden Gifts" can be found here.
*My non-Christmas crime story "Dear Dr. Watson" can be found here.
*My Arbor Day story "The MacGuffin Theft Case" can be found here. (Don't be disappointed if there's no mention of the glory of trees. All the Arbor Day stuff might have been cut out.)
And if you're still stuck at the sink after all that, you could always get your hands (and ears) on even more of my stories by buying Dear Mr. Holmes: Seven Holmes on the Range Mysteries as an audiobook.
