Penny Mickelbury

Penny Mickelbury is the author of ten mystery novels in three successful series: The Carol Ann Gibson Mysteries, the Mimi Patterson/Gianna Maglione Mysteries, and the Philip Rodriguez Mysteries. Mickelbury’s short stories have been included in several anthologies and collections, among them Spooks, Spies and Private Eyes: Black Mystery, Crime and Suspense Fiction (Paula Woods, Ed.),The Mysterious Naiad (Grier and Forrest, Ed.), and Shades of Black: Original Mystery Fiction by African-American Writers (Eleanor Taylor Bland, Ed.) The character in the story in this collection, “Murder Then…And Now,” Charles “Boxer” Gordon, so far lives only in short story form, but he’s feeling ready to step out — and into his own novel.
