Murder in Common
All about crime fiction books and authors. Mainly, I feature books by debut and mid-list writers. While not quite reviews, I consider these books to be recommended reading and try to give the flavour of each story.
June Lorraine Roberts is a Flash Fiction writer of crime fiction, whose stories have been featured by Punk Noir Magazine, Akashic Books and The Flash Fiction Press.
She is the creator of MurderInCommon.com, a website about crime fiction books and authors, that features debut and mid-list writers worldwide. Her website is a FeedSpot Top 100 Crime Fiction Blog.
A graduate of the London School of Journalism and a member of Sisters in Crime, she has served as a Derringer Judge and Bouchercon panelist, and has read her work at Noir at the Bar. As time permits, she beta reads for crime fiction authors.
Three Flash Fiction stories:
Winter Day – Punk Noir Magazine
The Hong Kong Deal – Akashic Books
Picking Blueberries – The Flash Fiction Press
For those of you not familiar with Flash Fiction, these are very short stories generally from 750 to 1200 words, depending upon the publishers requirements.
I’m a graduate from the London School of Journalism and work as a freelance corporate communications consultant.
Some random bits:
I began reading crime fiction at an early age by sneaking from the kids side of the library to where the real books were kept.
I’m a self-proclaimed writer & dilettante word crafter. My hobbies include: staring at keyboards, looking out windows, gazing at empty pages, and crying over a well balanced, fruit forward, pinot noir.
I was never a trophy wife but got to play the part for 3-years in Asia.
