I received exciting news last night…down at the International Christian Retailers’ association meeting in Orlando, Florida, the Christy Awards took place. The Christy Awards celebrate the best novels of the year, written with a Christian world view, and I knew WATERFALL was up for best YA of the year. Well, I’d kind of put it out of my mind, telling myself it was a long-shot, and then last night, checked into email to find out it’d won! It’s a very cool honor. Since I’m up in Montana, my agent, Steve Laube, kindly accepted on my behalf. Many thanks to the whole David C. Cook team who made my River series possible!
