Fox Five anthology

For a limited time only, you can download a free digital copy of the FOX FIVE short story collection. These five highly acclaimed stories follow Charlie Fox from self-defence instructor to fully-fledged close-protection officer. The Chicago Tribune called her "one of the most enigmatic—and coolest—heroines in contemporary genre fiction."

Bouchercon anthology has my Charlie Fox short story

Murder Under The Oaks anthology

For those of you pining for a taste of Charlie Fox, there is a brand new short story "Kill Me Again Slowly" included in the Bouchercon anthology, Murder Under The Oaks, edited by Art Taylor. Hereís a link to Art explaining more about the anthology for The Big Thrill.

I'll be taking part in a panel to celebrate the launch of this terrific anthology at Bouchercon, and also a group signing by all the contributing authors attending. Thereís quite a bunch of us—about eighteen of the twenty-one authors, including fellow Guests of Honour Tom Franklin and Margaret Maron. I canít wait to read the other stories.

You can pre-order your trade paperback or Kindle copy of Murder Under The Oaks from the publisher, Down And Out Books.

Kathleen Rose Perkins takes out TV/movie option on Charlie Fox series

Kathleen Rose Perkins

Iím very excited to share with you that the US actress Kathleen Rose Perkins has just taken out a TV/movie option on the Charlie Fox series. If you've seen Showtime's highly acclaimed 'Episodes' (with Matt LeBlanc), or 'NCIS: Los Angeles' (with Chris O'Donnell, Linda Hunt and LL Cool J) you will already be familiar with Kathleen's TV work.

She played Shawna Kelly in David Fincher's ĎGone Girl', opposite Ben Affleck and Rosamund Pike, and has appeared in movies with actors as diverse as Holly Hunter and James Cromwell. Kathleen recently moved behind the camera to take on the role of Executive Producer on indie film 'The Better Half', also starring Jamie Bamber and Chris Parnell.

This isn't the first time that the Charlie Fox series has been optioned—last time by Twentieth Century Fox TV—so I'm keeping my fingers crossed that this project moves forward. I will keep you informed of progress!

No word on who might play Sean Meyer if Charlie Fox makes it to the screen. Send your suggestions to me on Facebook or Twitter.
