You would think writing a short story, especially a mystery, would be very difficult thing to do. However, author Julie Mulhern did so flawlessly. She pack all of the aspects of a full sized mystery into one amazing short story.

I thought everything was wrapped going to be tied up in a nice, tidy bow when a suspect is named early on. I should have known it wouldn’t all be so easy. Mulhern did a twisty turn that took me completely by surprise!

DIAMOND GIRL has great relationships among the characters, a cunning mystery, and as always, Julie Mulhern’s writing is nothing short of perfection.

“If you want to write a novel, write a novel. If it’s essays you want or short stories, write them. In the process of writing them you will learn how. You can have the confidence that you will gradually acquire the technique and craft you need. Instead people often begin writing from a poverty mentality. They are empty and they run to teachers and classes to learn about writing. We learn writing by doing it. That simple. We don’t learn by going outside ourselves to authorities we think know about it.”

The gentleman smiled as he watched the thief’s pain. “Allow me to introduce myself. I am Balthazar, one of Hell’s demons. I believe you stole my watch.”
With a flick of his hand, the watch flew from the thief’s pocket and landed neatly on Balthazar’s palm. “You’re good, but you didn’t quite escape my notice. Unfortunately for you.”

From the story "Runner" in Killers and Demons II: They Return by A. F. Stewart
