I’m not sure how I’m writing this, between my fingers trembling and then also trying to keep them crossed (for the next three months), but….
My story “English 398: Fiction Workshop,” originally published in the July/August 2018 issue of Ellery Queen’s Mystery Magazine, has been named a finalist for this year’s Edgar Award for Best Short Story. A first for me, and I’m stunned and thrilled and honored in equal measure.
Congratulations to all the other finalists for short story and to all the finalists up and down this year’s list—full slate here! Looking forward to toasting you all in New York in April.
