One of my Works-In-Progress was nominated for the Joan Lowery Nixon Award at the 2016 Houston SCBWI conference. The winner will be selected by author Joy Preble (It Wasn’t Always Like This) and will get a year’s mentorship from Joy. Fingers and toes crossed!

The Joan Lowery Nixon Award was named for one of Houston’s best-loved writers of books for children and young adults. Joan Lowery Nixon wrote more than 140 books — historical fiction and mysteries for kids of all ages (including adults). The one I loved best was The Kidnapping of Christina Lattimore.
