Short Story: “The Care and Feeding of Houseplants” in Ellery Queen’s Mystery Magazine

January 27, 2013

EQMMar-April 2012CoverEllery Queen has just published the first of two of my stories scheduled for 2013. “The Care and Feeding of Houseplants,” which appears in EQMM‘s March/April issue (on newstands in late January), delves into a  treacherous little love triangle—exploring the crisscrossed relationships through the memories and musings of each of the participants. And while I’ve been fortunate to have several stories published in the magazine in recent years, this is the first time my name has appeared on the cover. What a nice surprise and a terrific honor, especially in such fine company as Alison Gaylin, Clark Howard, Bill Pronzini (MWA Grand Master!), Cheryl Rogers, and Elizabeth Zelvin. Zowie! — Art Taylor
