2017 Kansas Notable Book: A Nest of Hornets!

anh-cover-smallA Nest of Hornets was just selected for the 2017 Kansas Notable Book Award!

Every year the Kansas State Library selects fifteen books which “highlight Kansas people, places, and events” as Kansas Notable Books.

As a Kansas-based author I submitted A Nest of Hornets, and I literally had a jaw-dropping moment a few days ago when I received the notification that it was selected!

The awardees will be recognized at the 2017 Kansas Book Festival on September 9th, 2017 at the State Capitol in Topeka. I have been invited to be one of the presenting authors at the Festival, which needless to say is a tremendous honor! In addition to speaking about A Nest of Hornets, I will do a book signing, have the opportunity to meet some amazing authors and readers, will likely pick up a great book or three, and will definitely partake of the fare offered by some of the many food vendors!

Many thanks to my family, friends, readers, and fellow authors who encouraged me and made this honor possible!

Now, I feel as though I need to step up my game! Given the success of the Gideon Hake Series thus far, I must ensure that Gideon Hawke #4, A Constant Thunder, does not disappoint!

Meet the Author!

Exciting news! I have been invited to deliver a series of author talks and book signings in November at a Middle School in Lenexa, KS!

The 8th Grade class will be studying the American Revolution; I will be sharing some thoughts on life during the Revolution, and giving them the opportunity to learn more through the eyes of Gideon Hawke and Ruth Munroe!

This is the first such event to which I have been invited, and I am very excited, because it goes to the core of why I started writing historical fiction: to help young people find an interest in American History!

Soon there will be much more to follow!
