Do you like stories? Then you’re in the right place! I’m Dale E. Lehman, and I love to write stories as much as you love to read them.
I write novels and short stories. I write mysteries, science fiction, fantasy, and more. And I write them for you.
You can find my books at major online booksellers and my short stories at Medium.com, but the best way to connect with me is to join Story Corner, my weekly newsletter. Each Friday, I’ll deliver myself right to your inbox. You’ll receive free short stories, true stories, writing life stories, and book reviews. You’ll even get discounts on my print books. Best of all, when you sign up, I’ll send you a free digital copy of my first novel, The Fibonacci Murders (Howard County Mystery #1), plus “Seven Apples,” my first (and so far only) Howard County Mystery short story, and a set of printable Howard County Mystery bookmarks.
Please look around the site. Let me know if you have any questions. And don’t forget to sign up for Story Corner. Thanks for stopping by!
P.S. If you came here looking for Writing Corner, my newsletter for writers, I decided to discontinue it as of February, 2023. My apologies for any inconvenience or disappointment.
Dale Lehman captivates us once more with a collection of strange, exciting, and downright creepy short stories.... If you love short stories with a vast variety, or even if you just love road trips, fire up those engines and take to the highway with "Found By The Road"!
Score: 9.25 / 10
...a refreshingly traditional-style mystery that will captivate the reader. The plot is smart, twisty, and complex.. Lehman has created a rich, complex setting populated with well-defined and varied characters. This is a wholly original and very enjoyable read.
Once again the strong, fully developed main characters are here and forming a very solid basis for not one case but three! By now I am hooked, so I can’t really say this could be read as a stand-alone – but why would you want to. Start with "The Fibonacci Murders" and work your way to this one. You will not be sorry.
It is always a pleasure for the mystery/suspense enthusiast to include a new author in the genre who has a total mastery of the storytelling arts including character development and superbly plotted story lines with all manner of twists, turns, and surprises.... A genuine 'page turner' from beginning to end, "The Fibonacci Murders" is very highly recommended...
Whew! This was a COMPLETELY different direction from Lehman’s normal books – and I loved it... The adventure was constantly taking me for surprise – I never knew what was happening next but I was absolutely loving it. All in all, I’m so excited to have been able to read this new book from Lehman and I cannot WAIT to see what he writes next!!
This quirky heist story is utterly delightful.... Bernard has the brains, Melody has the heart, and they both have the looks... for better or for worse.
The charming cast of characters all bursting with personality makes "Weasel Words" a cozy pleasure. I can't wait to see what the Earls get up to next!
Despite the huge range, the stories follow a natural flow between realism, surrealism, and everything in between while maintaining the author’s signature voice... For anyone who enjoys thoughtful, well-written short stories in a full range of genres, "The Realm of Tiny Giants" is a no-brainer.
