I’ve published two mystery stories—
- During the 2004 World Series, a sportwriter grows obsessed by the idea that his new Arab neighbors (who seem perfectly nice to his wife) are plotting to blow up Fenway Park.
- Caller ID
- An ambivalent call center representative tries to save an undeserving doctor from identify theft.
—and three linked stories about the Fischermann family:
- The Ice Shelf
- Months after his wife Ingrid’s death, Cornelius Fischermann falls through thin ice on a swift river and must decide whether to go on living, himself.
- The Kinsman Ridge
- Driving his overweight son up a mountain trail, entrepreneur Carl Fischermann wonders if the doggedness that helps him in business is a liability in family life.
- The Ghost of Christmas Future
- Visiting her boyfriend’s family on Christmas Eve, the future Millicent Fischermann suffers an attack of cold feet.
