Holy cow. I won.

I guess it’s official. They announced it on YouTube and everything. I won the Crime Writers of Canada Award of Excellence for my short story, “Cold Wave.”

Forgive me for bragging a little. The judges called “Cold Wave” a “mini masterpiece,” and said the story had “pitch-perfect pacing” and that “the humour is delightful.”

To say I’m pleased is an understatement.

The best part is that the story was published in Sisters in Crime – Canada West’s inaugural anthology, Crime Wave. And not only that, one of my chapter sisters, Winona Kent, was also nominated for her novella, “Salty Dog Blues.” Now that’s a feather in our cap.

Thank you all for your kind congratulations. It’s much appreciated. I would like to congratulate the winners in the other categories. You will find them all listed in the Crime Writers of Canada news release.
