You’ve found the web page of N. M. Cedeño, author of short stories and novels.

Most of my writing falls under the general category of mystery fiction. Some of my stories are mysteries set in the near future.  Some are set in the present.  Some are traditional mysteries. Others are closer to romantic suspense.  I even write ghost story mysteries. Yes – all over the mystery genre map.  If you aren’t interested in one type of story, maybe another will catch your eye.
