Quoting Elaine Viets:
Didn't you and Dennis Lehane win this year's Florida Book Awards, Mary Anna?

Yes, crime fiction writers almost swept both fiction categories this year. Dennis got the gold and I got the bronze in General Fiction. In Popular Fiction, DJ Niko got the gold, Michael Lister won silver, and I took the bronze. It was great seeing DJ and Michael at the awards ceremonies, but I was disappointed that Dennis wasn't able to come. I was really hoping for the chance to be a fangirl. :)

I feel like I'm in good company, too, Elaine. I'm a big Dennis Lehane fan, and I believe the wonderful and talented Claudia Bishop has joined us in Florida, as well. Thanks for the focus on the Sunshine State, Oline.

You have put together an extensive list, and probably some of the books in your list will fit the Florida I know. Having spent most of my adult life in that glorious state, I can't enjoy the novels set in that state that I've read. Unabated cynicism, or a focus on violence and depravity are not elements of fiction that I enjoy or admire. Florida has a core of respectable, responsible citizens that are not represented in any of the novels I've read, especially those of Carl Hiaasen.

Hey, I'm in good (or is it bad?) company, Oline. I have all the Shames' Florida novels. PJ Parrish has moved Louis Kinkaid to Florida's West Coast. Those mysteries are fun to read, too.

Great to see such a well deserved salute to all the wonderful Florida mystery novelists.

They have provided untold hours of pleasure for me.
