February 2011


I have work published in The Foliate Oak (including the 2008 and 2009 annual “best of” print editions), 365tomorrows.com, mysteryauthors.com, Drops of Crimson, Colored Chalk, and The Citron Review. Stories published with Untreed Reads include A Mobster’s Guide to Cranberry Sauce, A Mobster’s Recipe for Cupcakes, and A Mobster's Toast to St. Patrick's Day. In 2011, I started a new short story romance series Young at Heart.

I live with my family in the Upper Midwest, and during the cold winter months dream of snorkeling in the Riviera Maya.

Poetry & Reading

Verse, Wisconsin's April, 2013 issue includes a tribute to Ellen Kort -- Wisconsin's first poet laureate. I have the honor of having a poem published in this special issue.

I am also doing a reading Sunday, April 21st at the Fox Cities Book Festival in Appleton, Wisconsin.

Beth’s Recent Updates

Pattern Recognition by William Gibson
“She knows, now, absolutely, hearing the white noise that is London, that Damien's theory of jet lag is correct: that her mortal soul is leagues behind her, being reeled in on some ghostly umbilical down the vanished wake of the plane that brought her here, hundreds of thousands of feet above the Atlantic. Souls can't move that quickly, and are left behind, and must be awaited, upon arrival, like lost luggage.”

Great news! Thanks for the heads-up!

Beth


Untreed Reads Alright Beth, big changes afoot. We've now made all of your Mobster titles (including A Mobster's Guide to Cranberry Sauce and the anthology The Killer Wore Cranberry) and Off the Dock available for sale through Goodreads. Anyone can preview a title on its book page, so if someone's asking you in the forums you can pretty easily send them along.
