When Women Didn't Count wins in New Orleans


Last weekend was the American Library Association annual conference.  At the Government Documents Round Table reception, held at the Louisiana Supreme Court building, I received the Margaret T. Lane / Virginia F. Saunders Memorial Research Award for When Women Didn't Count.  It's always a thrill to be recognized by your peers.  Western's Dean of Libraries, Mark Greenberg was there and kindly took this video.

The Red Envelope on Amazon

My "The Red Envelope" won the Black Orchid Novella Award in 2012 and it was published in Alfred HItchcock's Mystery Magazine the following summer.  James Lincoln Warren was kind enough to set it up in a Kindle-friendly format for me, but lazy me, I didn't put it up on Amazon until yesterday.  Now the world can read it for 99 cents.
