The honor is awarded by the Kiss of Death Chapter of the Romance Writers of America and is named after the author of REBECCA, the first romantic suspense novel. Open to all published and unpublished authors, this contest draws submissions from across the nation. I am honored to be named as one of five authors selected as finalists in the Mainstream Mystery & Suspense category. The final ranking will be announced at the Romance Writers of America’s annual conference in July.
Additionally, I have been named as a semi-finalist in the Florida Writers Association’s Royal Palm Literary Award and the manuscript will advance to the finalist judges. More on that later this year.
Now I’m hard at work on the next adventure!
