Wow! MERMAIDS Won!


I sooo did not expect this! I've just learned that WHY MERMAIDS SING has won the Best Historical Mystery Reviewers Choice Award from Romantic Times.

I've known for several months that MERMAIDS had been nominated. But it was up against such fierce competition from such well-known writers that I was convinced there was no way it would win. I simply counted it as an honor to be nominated, and forgot about it.

When I remember the conditions under which I wrote this book--as a Katrina refugee devoting most of my time to rebuilding my house--it really seems incredible. The most amazing thing to me is that the book ever made it into print.

WTG! Currently three quaters of the way into When Gods Die....loving it and so looking forward to Why Mermaids Sing :-)

Brilliant! That should make the world wake up and take notice.

And won't Hollywood be delighted when it finds the book already conveniently structured along Syd Field lines. (An excellent series of posts recently, by the way.)

May more good and deserved luck be winging your way.

Mermaids, like all of the novels in the series, is totally engaging and well deserving of an award! Please keep writing these wonderful stories; they are so enjoyable they have made me a fan of historical fiction.
