Winning the Barry Award, and Remembering Barry Gordon

Thank you so much to Deadly Pleasures Mystery Magazine for awarding Mr. Churchill's Secretary the  Barry Award for Best Paperback Original at Bouchercon 2013 in Albany on September 19th.

I didn't have the privilege of knowing Mr. Barry Gordon, but from the esteem the mystery writing community holds him in, I can only imagine what a kind and generous person he must have been.

It's a true honor to accept this award in his name.


  1. Congratulations Susan!I really enjoyed " Mr. Churchill's Secretary"-it was great. And it was such a pleasure to meet you at Bouchercon-

    1. Dear Kathy, it was great to meet you, too! Hope to see you again at other conventions soon!
