The Edgar Awards 2019

Official photo

What a fantastic night in New York City. Mystery Writers of America celebrated the 73rd Edgar Awards with a gala at the Grand Hyatt. And, as 2019 MWA President, I was privileged to emcee the ceremony.

Congratulations to everyone who was nominated, and especially to this year’s winners. The entire list is here.

It was great to see so many friends and writers I idolize, including MWA’s outgoing president, Jeffery Deaver, who presented the Raven Award to the New York Times crime fiction critic, Marilyn Stasio (and introduced me with a Jeopardy!-style quiz, in the form of questions).

Now to put my feet up. And read a whole bunch of amazing books.
