Mr. Churchill's Secretary Nominated for a Dilys Award!

Delighted to say that Mr. Churchill's Secretary has been nominated by the Independent Mystery Booksellers Association as the mystery title of the year independent mystery booksellers love hand-selling.

Holy cats!

Thank you!


  1. I purchased Mr Churchill's Secretary when it first came out but it went on my "to be read" stack. I finally started it this Sat morning and finished it last night at 2AM. What a great read and you and the book deserve every award you get. I really like Maggie and you so a great job of creating a real sense of the atmosphere in London at that time. Luckily, I had picked up Princess Elizabeth's Spy and already had it in my stack so I can jump right into the next Maggie story. Unfortunately, I will have to wait a few months for His Majesty's Hope. Wishing you the best and hoping that Maggie continues for many years to come. She is a wonderful character.

  2. Thank you so much, Deb! Not too long to wait — His Majesty's Hope will be out in May 2013!
