Steamy News: PNWA Literary Contest Finalist

Excited to announce that "A Steamy Cup of Mayhem" is a finalist in the 2022 Pacific Northwest Writers Association Literary Contest in the Mystery/Thriller/Horror category. This is the second book in the Babe Cuckoo cozy mystery series. The first story "A Steamy Cup of Murder" was a finalist in the same category last year.

The eight finalists will now go through a second round of judging to determine the top three places. Winners will be announced at the PNWA Conference September 23-25. Send Babe (and me) a little extra luck on the 24th.

Cheers to my fellow finalists--perhaps our paths will cross at the conference and we can create a secret handshake.
