Didn’t win

My esteemed co-writer Barney Miller (right) and myself at the reception for the 2011 Mystery Writers’ Association of America Edgar Awards Banquet last Thursday. Our book was nominated for the Young Adult category but didn’t win. Who cares! The whole thing was such a total blast (and the guy who DID win our category started writing in his sixties and cried when he accepted the award, so how cool is that?). Barney and I also participated in a panel discussion the day before, which was actually a great conversation about mysteries and horror (and will be available as online video at some point in the vague future). Anyway what a night!
