BTAP #85: Someone to Watch Over Me by Matthew P. Mayo

So, Matthew Mayo and his lovely wife, Jennifer, (well, Matt's not too shabby himself) invited d and I to their home for dinner a couple of weeks ago. We had a super great time discussing books and publishing among many other things. When the talk turned to gardening, we walked to the backyard and I became alarmed. Why? Let's just say that though Jen has a beautiful, manicured vegetable and flower garden, I kept scanning trees in the yard thinking of the short story Matt had sent to BTAP. What if his idea hadn't stemmed from imagination but actual events. It's a little freaky to think about. Here's Matthew Mayo in BEAT to a PULP with "Someone to Watch Over Me."

Next: Elizabeth Zelvin's "Dress to Die"
