"Welcome to YELLOW MAMA, a crime fiction 'zine as sizzling as the chair it's named after."

Note: At Yellow Mama, we deal in FICTION, just for entertainment. We never condone senseless mass murders and our hearts go out to the victims of all mass shootings, terrorist attacks and other acts of senseless violence. We are holding them in our thoughts and prayers.

Hi all, 

  I'm sorry to tell you that Ann Marie Rhiel, YELLOW MAMA's Assistant Art Director, passed away on Tuesday, Jan. 24. 

  Annie loved being part of the YM family. She was also an amazing artist who may have illustrated some of your stories, or poems. Her covers were phenomenal. We will all miss her artwork, and especially her, very much.  

  Here is the obituary, if anyone would like to send a sympathy card, or plant a tree in her memory: 


 Annie's family is very private so please don't post anything on Facebook, or other social media. 

  Thank you.
