Phyllis L. Humby lives in rural Camlachie, Ontario. Although her passion is for writing suspense/thriller novels, her short stories, often scheming, twisted, or spooky, appear in anthologies and journals in Canada, the U.S., and the U.K.
A humorous short story, “Delusional Date,” awarded her an appearance as a Fringe reader at Eden Mills Writers’ Festival 2013.
In December 2013, a psychological suspense, “Whiskey Nights,” captured second spot, earning $1500 in the YMM national short story competition. This ultimately led to Phyllis’s decision to join Crime Writers of Canada.
Her story, “Reflections of Miss Sally” won the 2014 Bony Pete Award for Best Short Story at the Bloody Words Mystery Conference in Toronto.
