Can I vote for my own book (Learning to Swim) for best first novel?!? Since it wasn't reviewed here, maybe I can entice readers to sample the first chapter. Thanks for posting the list!

Well Sara,

I understand you did win and Edgar. The Edgar's Simon & Schuster/Mary Higgins Clark Award for LEARNING TO SWIM, to be specific.

Welcome to this little slice of the web and thanks for joining us.
