Colorado Book Awards Winner

11033124_851435518227555_4434116465713268768_nSo humbled to have won in the Historical Fiction category of the Colorado Book Awards! Here I am standing awkwardly among some very good writers (just behind a Pulitzer Prize winner, in fact!).

The other finalists in my category, The Circle of Na’mow and A Quilt for Christmas, were certainly just as deserving of the award. Congratulations to Anna McDermott, Gretchen Wiegand, and Sandra Dallas for their nominations.

I was also captivated by many of the other finalists and winners, including Mark Stevens’s mystery Trapline and Christopher Merkner’s short story collection The Rise & Fall of the Scandamerican Domestic. Check them out!

I feel very grateful to have the support of my fellow authors at Wooden Stake, including Jonna Gjevre and Jeff Chacon. Thanks guys. I owe you a drink.
