Sasscer Hill’s horse racing mystery received an Agatha Nomination for Best First Mystery Novel written in 2010.
This is a huge honor. I am surprised by my reacion which is one of contentment and a strong feeling of validation, rather than overwhelming excitement. It was a long hard journey, and this nomination is like an oasis in the desert. There are five nominees for an Agatha in this category, and the winner will be chosen at the Agatha Convention on Saturday, April 30.
If I were to win, I would be agog and amazed. Gaga over the Agatha!
