First, we’re trilled to announce that we will both have short stories published in The Best American Mystery Short Stories 2009, edited by Jeffrey Deaver. The Best American Mystery Short Stories series is consistently one of the best crime fiction anthologies around. It’s an honor to be included for my first short story and a special treat to share space for the first time in a publication with my father.
Second, we will both be at the 2009 Edgar Awards Banquet in New York City on April 30, 2009. Dad, along with Sue Grafton, will be honored as a Grand Master by the Mystery Writers of America. I had the special privilege of writing a tribute to him for the program and will share it all with you once it is public. My entire family will be descending on Manhattan for the festivities so it will be a busy and celebratory weekend.
