7/25: "Best Writer" winner, Baltimore Magazine's "Best of Baltimore"

Honored (and surprised) to be a winner in Baltimore Magazine's "Best of Baltimore" this year in the category of "Best Writer." Although I suppose that's debatable, what is not is that I've been very lucky this year, with three books coming out (one of which was my debut novel) from really great independent presses and a lot of local accolades. Thanks, Baltimore. I'm Forever Your Girl!
