Mr. Churchill's Secretary Nominated for an Edgar Award!

Delighted to announce that Mr. Churchill's Secretary has been nominated for an Edgar Award, in the category of "Best First Novel by an American Author"!

The Edgars (formally known as the Edgar Allan Poe Awards) are awarded each year by the Mystery Writers of America, for distinguished work in the mystery genre: novels, television, and motion pictures. 

This year's ceremony will be on Thursday, May 2, 2013 at the Grand Hyatt Hotel in New York City. Dress is "dress to kill."

I'm humbled and honored to be in such distinguished company. 


  1. Wonderful! And what fun-- will you find a Maggie dress for the occasion?

  2. Thank you, Ji Hyang. The idea of shopping/dressing up fills me with more angst and dread than a murder mystery, alas.....

  3. Congrats, congrats -- I'm so delighted! Amazing company, too, but I'll be rooting for you and Maggie!

  4. Thank you, Audra. Amazing company, yes. I'm gobsmacked, actually. (And my agent also reps Daniel Friedman (Don't Ever Get Old).
