Congratulations to Cornelia Read

And, more congratulations. This time, to Cornelia Read, who has been awarded a National Endowment for the Arts Creative Writing Fellowship in the amount of $25,000.

Cornelia submitted the first thirty pages of her forthcoming book, The Crazy School, as her writing sample. The Crazy School is her second crime novel to feature Madeline Dare. Her first book was the critically acclaimed A Field of Darkness, which is now available in paperback.

Release date for The Crazy School is January 10th. This will be a book to watch, as I mentioned in an earlier post.

Congratulations, Cornelia! Well-deserved.
