Carl Robinette is currently developing new fiction and other creative writing. His short stories have appeared in Every Day Fiction,Ellery Queen Mystery Magazine, Mystery Tribune and several other publications in print and online.
Carl has worked as a contributing reporter with the Los Feliz Ledger in Los Angeles and has worked as a contributing reporter for numerous publications including the Star News in Chula Vista, San Diego City News and more.
Watch Carl Robinette read his flash fiction story “Luck & Retribution” which was originally published by Mystery Tribune. A man is marked for assassination but his advanced-stage cancer will kill him within days. The hitman hired to take out the dying man will have to decide whether to see his job through or let nature take its course.
Watch me read an excerpt from my short story “Nothing Doing” which was published in the June 2020 issue of Mystery Weekly Magazine. Hard to believe it’s already been a year since this story came out. This is a great issue of the magazine with a lot of different types of mystery stories.
The question then becomes… How do writers connect with a population that is leaving the written word behind? I’m not sure I have the answer but this is the experiment. Watch the video for my poem “Slow Burned & Inked” on YouTube.
