Thank you Bill Crider and Mystery Scene Magazine

Where’s the champagne? Am thrilled by a nice mention in Mystery Scene magazine about my short story, “When I’m Famous.” In his column, “Short & Sweet,” Bill Crider writes: “Dara Carr makes a notable debut with her first short story…” and “‘When I’m Famous’ is Dara Carr’s first story, but the voice of the narrator here is so distinctive and assured that it sells the story from the first paragraph.”

YAY! The column mentioning my story begins, “Now and then I read an article about the importance of ‘voice’ in fiction. If you want to get a master class in practical examples of how voice can make a story work, just pick up in the June 2014 issue of Ellery Queen Mystery Magazine (EQMM).”

Super cool to be mentioned in an impressive round-up that includes Dave Zeltserman, Bill Pronzini, Liza Cody, Marilyn Todd, Robert Lopresti, Roger Jones, and Amy Myers.
