I always love the Mystery Writers of America’s Edgar Week, because it brings so many wonderful writers to New York. Here’s why this year’s festivities were even more fun than usual…
So thrilled that Hank Phillippi Ryan won the Mary Higgins Clark Award for THE OTHER WOMAN! That’s her Tor/Forge editor, Kristin Sevick Brown on the left and her agent, Lisa Gallagher, on the right.
- Hanging out with Reed Farrel Coleman at the Agents & Editors party.
With the beautiful and talented Kim Fay, author of THE MAP OF LOST MEMORIES, which was a finalist for the Edgar Award for Best First Novel.
Ellery Queen Mystery Magazine’s editor in chief, Janet Hutchings, at the Dell Magazines party.
Lovely Susan Elia MacNeal (a finalist for the Edgar for Best First Novel for MR. CHURCHILL’S SECRETARY) and her husband, Noel, at the Edgar Awards.
With Maryelizabeth Hart, co-owner of the Mysterious Galaxy bookstores and the winner of a Raven Award! We joked that we coordinated our colors…
Oh, Edgar, why must you be so delicious?
With my Sister in Crime Laura K. Curtis (one of the forces of nature behind Criminal Element).
With Kevin Egan (author of MIDNIGHT, coming this summer from Tor/Forge), Terrie Moran and Laura K. Curtis.
Lovely ladies Dana Cameron, Terrie Moran with… (blanking one this sweet woman’s name… help!). UPDATE: It’s Toni L.P. Kelner. Thanks, Marlyn Beebe!
