2016 Ellery Queen Award from Mystery Writers of America. To say I was totally surprised is an understatement. I am honored, appreciative, and humbled. Over the past 40 years, I've devoted myself to 'enriching the lives of mystery readers'. That's the tagline for Mystery Readers International, and I guess for me, too.
Mystery Readers Journal has been a labor of love, and I thank Kate Derie, my associate editor, and all the 1500 writers, librarians, and readers who have contributed to and supported the Mystery Readers Journal over the past 31 years. I share this award with everyone in the wonderful and supportive mystery community.
Here are the lovely roses my husband brought me to celebrate! Next stop: New York, NY, to receive the award at the Edgars.
