Excerpt from Mr. Floyd’s Hard Drive:

It was sheer agony, trying to avoid meeting Nadia Yohn’s eyes. I knew that if I did, everyone in the room would see the spark and flash. I couldn’t believe it wasn’t already obvious.

But we were the only ones aware of it.

I sat on our side of the table alongside the senior homicide detective, Carl Stimple, and Lori Wiese from the district attorney’s office. Across from us sat Nadia and her attorney, Tyler Beckenridge. It was hard to discern which was more highly polished—the walnut tabletop or Breckenridge’s pink scalp.

Mr. Floyd’s Bio:

Bill Floyd lives in Hillsborough, North Carolina, with his wife, Amy, and his dog, Max. His first published novel, The Killer’s Wife, won the Mary Higgins Clark Award for 2009. Floyd can often be foundin dark music clubs listening to a variety of underground bands. His taste in fiction runs the gamut from literary to genre, with no apologies for either. He is currently working on a novel about secrets and the costs of keeping them. A sampling of his flash fiction can be found at

Love Is Murder is an action-packed, adventure-filled, pulse-pounding anthology. The stories are short but compelling and full of unexpected twists and turns.
