Southeastern Writers Association 2017
My new novel, Beyond The Cabin, was awarded the Hal Bernard Award for best novel. I can't express how touched and honored that I am to win this award. I received the Hal Bernard Award back in 2014 for my first novel, Behind The Mask. It means so much to be recognized by SWA. Thank you to Buzz Bernard and to the entire SWA board for this honor. I hope I make you proud.
