“The Juggling Act of Writing Novels and Short Stories” (by Brendan DuBois)

“The Juggling Act of Writing Novels and Short Stories” (by Brendan DuBois) | SOMETHING IS GOING TO HAPPEN: Brendan DuBois’s fiction-writing career began in 1986 in EQMM’s Department of First Stories. As he mentions in this post, he’s had more than 150 short stories published since then, all while also pursuing a successful career as a novelist. Brendan’s considerable and distinguished output spans more than the mystery field. 2016 will see three new DuBois novels added to his body of work. Dark Victory, published in January, is his first science-fiction novel (Baen Books). This month, Midnight Ink released his standalone thriller Night Road, and in November, Storm Cell, the eleventh novel in his mystery series starring Lewis Cole, is due from Pegasus. Brendan is the recipient of many honors for his fiction, including two Shamus awards from the Private Eye Writers of America. Most recently, he tied for second-place for the 2015 EQMM Readers Award, for his story “The Lake Tenant” (EQMM November 2015).—Janet Hutchings

He's probably my favorite current mystery short story writer. I read the two new books mentioned in the piece and highly recommend them as well.

I've really enjoyed his stories in EQMM over the years.

By the way, he makes a cameo appearance in my book coming out in August, SURVIVORS WILL BE SHOT AGAIN.
