Shelterbelts Named a Finalist in the Willa Literary Awards for Historical Fiction

I’m honored to be named a finalist in this year’s Willa Literary Awards for Historical Fiction.  It’s like getting a silver or bronze at the Olympics, and I couldn’t be happier.  The best of all is that I get to make an unexpected trip to the Women Writing the West Convention in Santa Fe, NM, to receive my award.  Thank you Women Writing the West for choosing Shelterbelts.   I look forward to meeting you all in October.
