Penury’s second book, STAND-UP AND DIE, won the Merit Award for Fiction form the Midwest Independent Publishers Association. Penury’s third book was WHO DIED IN HERE? It is a collection of 25 mystery short stories by 25 master storytellers where the crime occurs in the bathroom. HOTDISH HAIKU features 13 poets celebrating, yet lampooning the existence of hotdish.
