I seem to be trained for novels. Even when I set out to write shorter pieces, they end up connecting with each other in ways that I hadn't anticipated. The biggest example being this: who knew that these mystery stories would also end up being the novel of how a couple turned into a family?
(Certainly not me.)
Anyway, there's more of "The Church Murder Case" posted.
Later: The Roger Ebert piece is here. It's the introduction to his book on Martin Scorsese. The part I mentioned is near the end.
