I'm thrilled to share that my second novel, UNTIL SHE COMES HOME (Dutton/Penguin), is among the six novels nominated for this year's BEST NOVEL award.  It's all the more exciting as some of my favorite authors are among the other nominees. 

I had a wonderful time when last I attended the Edgars, and I look forward to another terrific trip.
