Book awards season is here. Time to celebrate! I’m happy to report that it’s been a good one for me, with Ballast Point Breakdown taking some honors.

First up, BFB was selected as a first place winner in the 2020 CLUE Awards for Suspense and Thriller fiction.

Secondly, BFB was honored with two awards in the 2021 San Diego Book Awards. First, it was named best Published Mystery/Suspense Fiction. And it was also named SDBA’s 2021 Geisel Winner, which is their “best in show” overall award.

If you’ve been reading this blog or my newsletter, you’ll know I’m working on a historical novel that includes Ted “Dr. Seuss” Geisel as a character. You’ll also know that I have some family connections to his work. So it feels especially gratifying to have one of my books honored with an award in his name. Some kind of full circle thing, I guess.

At any rate, it’s always nice to get some recognition for your work. Now back to finishing the next book.
