Overview

"For Sale by Owner” was originally published in 2000 in Murderous Intent Mystery Magazine. “I'm interested in relationships, particularly family relationships,” Marcia told a library audience recently. “I introduce a cast of characters, throw in a monkey wrench and watch to see what happens!” In this off-beat story, the "monkey wrench" is Sheila, a prospective buyer for Stanley and Millie’s longtime home. Millie is looking forward to relocating to Florida, but Stanley . . . well, when couples disagree, the consequences can be unpredictable—and deadly.

Meet the Author

Marcia Talley is the author of ALL THINGS UNDYING and eight previous mystery novels featuring survivor and sleuth, Hannah Ives. Hannah's tenth adventure, A QUIET GRAVE, will be published in the summer of 2011 by Severn House.

Marcia Talley's Agatha and Anthony award-winning short stories have appeared in more than a dozen collections, including anthologies edited by New York Times best-selling authors Lawrence Block, Elizabeth George, Laura Lippman, and Anne Perry. They have been selected for inclusion in "The World's Finest Mystery and Crime Stories" and "The Deadly Bride and 21 of the Year's Finest Crime and Mystery Stories," edited by Ed Gorman and Martin H. Greenberg.

"My mother was an avid mystery fan, and a charter subscriber to Ellery Queen's Mystery magazine, so mysteries were always around the house," Marcia told a Philadelphia newspaper. "I was also a great fan of that old television show, 'Alfred Hitchcock Presents' and am grateful that although it appeared on TV late on a Sunday night (a school night--gasp!) I was allowed to stay up to watch it . . . I think my fondness for quirky endings can be traced back directly to Mr. Hitchcock."

Marcia divides her time between Annapolis, Maryland and living aboard an antique sailboat in the Bahamas with a husband who loves to sail and a cat who doesn't.
