Minnesota Book Awards

Is there another state blessed with such a diversity of great genre writers as Minnesota?  It’s really an amazing list we have in this state. Of course, what is there to do in the winters but sit inside and think dark thoughts?

For me, I am so honored that THE VOICE INSIDE is a finalist for the Minnesota Book Award for Genre Fiction, along with books by Kelly Barnhill, Allen Eskens, and Mindy Mejia. It’s the fifth time I’ve been a finalist…wow! This recognition for THE VOICE INSIDE comes on the heels of nominations for my earlier books STRIPPED, THE BONE HOUSE, THE COLD NOWHERE, and SEASON OF FEAR.

So if you haven’t read THE VOICE INSIDE yet, this is the perfect time! (And the follow-up book THE CROOKED STREET arrives on Tuesday.) Then be sure to check out all of our great Minnesota writers.
