Mystery Awards Announced


Sadly, I did not make it to Dallas for Bouchercon this year.  

It's always a good time and I missed seeing so many good friends.

It's a time to reconnect with readers and writers I only get to see at mystery conventions.

So, I didn't get to collect hugs, and I didn't get to give out congratulatory hugs, but I am proud as punch to share award winners here.  And prouder yet to call some of these folks "friend."
