My short story Claire's Cabin appears in the March/April 2023 issue of Alfred Hitchcock's Mystery Magazine.
In Claire’s Cabin, three women settle beside the fireplace in a mountain cabin after a successful deer hunt. Friends since high school, each faced small town gossip and condemnation for their youthful indiscretions. They discuss an old mystery – the disappearance of an eccentric artist's abusive husband fifteen years ago. The former owner of the cabin they're in used found materials, including dead animals, in her artwork. After her husband vanished, Claire moved to a New Mexico artists' colony and found the peace she always desired. The women hunters puzzle over the mystery, while enjoying the second chance they each have achieved.
