Some nice 2010 accolades

As creators of children's book know the end of each year and the beginning of the next is award season time. In the last month two of my books from last year have won some acclaim.

The Can Man was included on Smithsonian magazine's list of Notable Books for Children in 2010. Also Hot Pursuit: Murder in Mississippi was named a 2011 Sydney Taylor Notable Book for Older Readers.

Fingers crossed I will have some more good news to share in the near future. Either way this was a great way to begin 2011!
