This is just a quick announcement about some stories I’ve made available online. In addition to writing horror, I write mysteries under the name Aria Klein. I’ve started publishing flash fiction and short stories at QuickMystery.com.
While these are technically mysteries, some will potentially cross into horror territory — murder, stalkers, and all sorts of good things.
Just note that these stories are published in very rough form — as in most are first drafts (you know, those horrid little creatures never meant to see the light of day). The Quick Mystery blog was launched as an experimental platform for me to test new story ideas, play with different styles, and otherwise avoid my “real work” on any given day.
A few that might be of interest to visitors here include:
- The Secret Admirer — Loosely based on a real-life seedy late night phone call I received from a stalker ex
- Falling Off the Wagon — About a death at the fairgrounds
- 3 A.M. — Another based on a real-life incident, this time about a possible break-in and feeling vulnerable at home
I’m considering doing something similar here on the blog, but strictly horror flash fiction. If you’re interested in seeing that or have something you’d like me to write about, feel free to comment or email me.
