Spider Woman’s Daughter wins Spur Award
“I was thrilled to get a call from the president of the esteemed group Western Writers of America letting me know that my mystery was being honored with the 2014 Spur Award for Best First Novel. The award is especially meaningful because I know there were many, many fine books submitted for the honor. And because the Spur was among the awards my Dad treasured the most.
