TMC Chosen Best Manuscript

At the 2015 Atlanta Writers Conference my novel THE MARGARET CHRONICLES was chosen Best Manuscript by Sarah Smith, agent at The David Black Agency. It was a tremendous  honor. I'm receiving the award from Sarah, on the right. The conference is always great. Lots of nervous authors attend and pitch their work to agents and editors.
