I won the 2018 Bram Stoker Award for Superior Achievement in a Fiction Collection!!!!

Although it’s been a day-and-a-half since the announcement, I’m still running on an adrenaline high as the realization continues to settle in that on Saturday night I was awarded something like the culmination of a dream: The Bram Stoker Award for my collection, THAT WHICH GROWS WILD: 16 Tales of Dark Fiction!!!

Awestruck, humbled, and honored to receive this esteemed recognition, something I will cherish the remainder of my life.

I’m going to write more on this later, but I at least wanted to holler the news from this (virtual) mountaintop this morning, after the long travel home and from celebrating/ prioritizing Mother’s Day activities.

Thank you so much to my acquiring editor Norman Prentiss and to my publisher Cemetery Dance. I have a miles-long list of other thanks I’m going to write up and share soon, but in lump sum, THANK YOU also to all my supporters, reviewers of this book, and to the family that is The Horror Writers Association!!

And immense congratulations also to all other nominees and award recipients of the 2018 Bram Stoker Awards!!
