A Hell Of A Woman

Remember how resistant I was? Why is it that NO is the first word that comes to mind when I’m asked to write something I’m not used to doing?

A Hell of A Woman is the title of the anthology. My story is Everybody Loves Somebody. Megan Abbott is the editor with an introduction by Val McDermid. The other writers are:

Lynne Barrett, Ken Bruen, Charlotte Carter, Christa Faust, Stona Fitch, Lisa Respers France, Alison Gaylin, Sara Gran, Allan Guthrie, Libby Fischer Hellman, Vicki Hendricks, Naomi Hirahara, Charlie Huston, Annette Meyers, Donna Moore, Eddie Muller, Vin Packer, Rebecca Pawel, Cornelia Read, S.J. Rozan, Zoe Sharp, Sarah Weinman and Daniel Woodrell.

It’s a hell of a group of stories and I’m proud to be included.

A Hell of a Woman got a rave review in today's Chicago Tribune Book section. Sandra's story, Everybody Loves Somebody, was particularly noted. I quote: "Standout selections include 'Everybody Loves Somebody,' by Scoppettone, a violent and erotic story a la James M. Cain's classic "The Postman Always Rings Twice" with a twist." Congratulations Sandra! And hope you feel better soon.
