Silver Falchion WINNER!

Something amazing happened! CONFOUND IT won a Silver Falchion Award at Killer Nashville 2019. The field was tight, and I honestly didn’t expect to win among such stiff competition. I nearly didn’t hear my name called by category announcer Charley Pearson.

I floated up to the podium to get the award. Gosh, it was so super. Here it is nearly three weeks later, and I still get misty-eyed thinking about that beautiful moment.

So grateful for all the readers, fans, judges, and KN staffers who made this wonderful conference possible. It was a life moment for me and one I will always cherish!

Villains are Characters Too

Join me at the Killer Nashville blog on May 22 where I’m discussing villains. We often think of the bad guy second when we’re working on characterization, but we benefit when we take a different approach. I give behind the scenes information about my forthcoming release, Confound It. I hope you’ll join me at the conference’s website blog:
