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 crime fiction. Some of my stories are mysteries set in the near future. Some are set in the present. Some are set in the past. Some are traditional mysteries. I even write ghost story mysteries.


Here’s the Latest News:

Black Cat Mystery Magazine #12, the cozies issue is out! It contains my short story “It Came Upon a Midnight Ice Storm.” Get in the Holiday Mood. Fall is the perfect time to read a Christmas story set during an ice storm.

Stories published in 2022 include: A reprint of “A Reasonable Expectation of Privacy” in Black Cat Weekly in January; a reprint of  “The Wrong Side of History” in the After Dinner Conversation collection Season Five in February; “Reaching for the Moon” in Crimeucopia: Say What Now? in March; “Nice Girls Don’t” in Groovy Gumshoes: Private Eyes in the Psychedelic Sixties in April; “Serenity, Courage, Wisdom” in Black Cat Weekly in May; the above mentioned “It Came Upon a Midnight Ice Storm” in August; and “Merry Library Murder” is coming in December in Black Cat Weekly.
