Clean Published In The Haunted Volume of Fiction River

My short story Clean has been published in the Haunted volume of the award winning Fiction River anthology series.

A little bit of a departure for me, Clean is a fun story about an older man who's lost his wife, but she comes back to teach him a few things about life - including about how to do the laundry.

It was absolutely a riot to write it, and I'm smiling here as I write this update. I think you'll have fun with it.

Go to Fiction River to find out more about this fantastic volume, or click here on the Haunted link to go direct to Amazon, Kobo, iBooks, or Barnes & Noble to pick up your copy today.

That's two stories I've sold to Fiction River this year, plus I'll have more published there in 2017!
