Barry Award - Best British Crime Novel
Congratulations to Peter James for the Barry Award for Dead Man's Grip! I had the pleasure of meeting Mr. James at the Cleveland airport after Bouchercon. Sadly, I hadn't attended the awards ceremony, so I didn't know to congratulate him in person.
I'm supposed to be retired, but I keep busy as a media escort and editor of inSinC, the Sisters in Crime journal.
I read about 200 mysteries a year and have been reviewing and lecturing about mysteries for about 15 years. I often host mystery authors and book them into stores, libraries, and other venues in the Raleigh-Durham-Chapel Hill area.
If you live in the Raleigh-Durham-Chapel Hill area of North Carolina, you may want to subscribe to "Triangle Mystery" where I operate a list-serv alerting folks to upcoming mystery events and happenings. I post bookstore and library events as well as schedules for authors who are visiting with me. Just scroll down to the bottom of the page and click on the "Join" button.
