Teamwork in Dark Venice

The two women in the story are thrown into a situation where their only chance of extricating themselves lies in pooling their abilities.

No one can work entirely alone. We all have friends, colleagues, partners in crime. Even authors, whose work is notoriously solitary, get advice from other authors and eventually connect with agents, publishers and readers.

That’s the message of my story, Teamwork, in Dark Venice, the new and wonderful anthology of short stories from Darkstroke.

The two women in the story are thrown into a situation where their only chance of extricating themselves lies in pooling their abilities.

I have visited Venice three times. It’s a unique and fascinating city. If you haven’t been, I highly recommend going there. And in the meantime, read these dark and delightful stories. Click on the link.
