Honored to announce that my Civil War novel Above and Beyond has been awarded the 2014 John Esten Cooke Award for Southern Fiction.
Noble Cause won the 2011 Award, so I am a two-time winner!
Cooke was a Civil War soldier and one of the most important literary figures of nineteenth-century Virginia. A prolific author of historical adventures and romances, he holds a significant place in Virginia’s literary history and in nineteenth-century American literary culture.
I did a short post on my Life in the Past Lane blog.
