Hats Off! to Chris Roerden who reports that the 2014 anthology Writes of Passage: Adventures on the Writer's Journey, to which she was invited to submit an essay, is one of five nominated books for this year's upcoming Agatha Awards in the category of Nonfiction. Chris' 575-word essay "Married to the Job" covers a writer's commitment. Coincidentally, her own tenth book, Don't Murder Your Mystery, was the first book about writing to win an Agatha in the fourteen years since the Nonfiction category was added to the national awards. In addition, Hank Phillippi Ryan, editor of the just-nominated anthology, contracts with Chris to edit her own writing: five thrillers so far in her second series of mysteries, the multi-award-winning Jane Ryland/Jake Brogan series.
