Once upon a time, I wrote a story about a private detective named Margie Potter. She lived and worked in San Francisco in the year 1947. The original story was really “adult oriented” and “gritty” but the people who wanted to publish it wanted something more “Young Adult” themed. That, plus the word count restriction, made me cut the story in half. Fortunately, it still worked.
Then the publishers Ann and Ruth wanted to interview me. No, not just me, but all of the authors featured in the anthology The Trench Coat Chronicles. So here we are at last.
