Her paranormal suspense novel, Cheat the Hangman, was shortlisted for the 2009 CWC Unhanged Arthur Ellis contest and was published in 2011 by Imajin Books. It won the inaugural Bony Blithe Award in 2012, and Gloria is working on a Lyris Pembrooke sequel, Beneath the Asphalt.
Her second mystery, Corpse Flower (Dundurn Press), went the distance and won the 2010 Unhanged Arthur Ellis Award. The second in the Cornwall & Redfern Mystery series, Shroud of Roses, is in the works.
"Last Roll of the Dice", Gloria's first short story, took second place in the 2011 Bony Pete contest. Although she doesn’t consider herself a short story writer, Gloria just can’t pass up a contest.
