The Grass is Always Greener was the first short story every written by Sandra Balzo, yet it was picked up by Ellery Queen’s Mystery Magazine (March 2003) and won both the Robert L. Fish and Macavity awards for Best Short Story. Balzo’s second story, Viscery, was also published in EQMM (December 2004) and went on to win the Derringer Award and a nomination for the Macavity.
