Exciting News

I was notified this morning that I am a finalist for the Mystery/Suspense category of the Whitney Awards for If I Should Die.  Five finalists were selected in this category.  The other four authors are writers I respect and admire; Gregg Luke, Stephanie Black, Traci Hunter Abramson, and Anne Perry. Of course I'd love to win, but these writers are friends of mine and I can't help wanting them to win too.  Whether I win or not, it will be so much fun to see them at the awards dinner in May. 

There are seven category or genre awards given to LDS authors by the Whitney Academy each year plus an award for the overall Best Novel of the Year and another for the Best Novel by a New author.  For a complete list of the thirty-five nominees for these awards, go to the Whitney Web Page.
