Nominated for a Derringer Award!

I am thrilled that my short story, “Tethered,” has been short-listed for a Derringer Award. There are 21 finalists in four categories and the winners in each category will be announced on May 1. I’m particularly chuffed to be short-listed because this is a peer chosen award.

“Tethered” was published in the second Sisters in Crime Canada West anthology, Crime Wave: Women of a Certain Age last year. My short story, “Cold Wave,” which appeared in the first anthology, won an Award of Excellence from Crime Writers of Canada.
