Novel with Woman P.I. Wins Shamus Award – M. Ruth Myers

Novel with Woman P.I. Wins Shamus Award

Five days and a cross-country plane trip later, I’m still somewhat dazed from winning a Shamus Award at Bouchercon 2014 in Long Beach.  The Private Eye Writers of America named Don’t Dare a Dame the Best Indie P.I. Novel of 2013.

I feel humbled and very, very happy to receive this sort of validation from writers in the field which has long been my favorite.  It’s been a long road, and this is the sort of dream I never expected to come true.  My first book, mystery/suspense, was published in 1979.  For many years thereafter, I was constantly nudged to write novels of other types, even though I constantly floated ideas for mysteries with women sleuths.

More photos to come, along with a list of all this year’s Shamus winners and other tidbits on the gathering.  Meanwhile, I wanted to share.

M. Ruth Myers writes the Maggie Sullivan mystery series featuring a woman private eye in the 1930s/40s.
