Georgia Author of the Year!

Georgia Author of the Year! June 8, 2016

GAYA Winner SealThis past Saturday evening I received a lovely honor. The Georgia Writers’ Association selected me as a “Georgia Author of the Year” in the Inspirational/Religious category for Befriending Silence.

The Georgia Author of the Year Awards is the oldest literary awards ceremony in the southeastern United States, started by the Dixie Council of Authors and Journalists in 1964 and hosted by the GWA since 1994.

Befriending Silence was among 154 nominations in 14 categories that include both fiction and non-fiction genres.

Thanks goes out to my lovely wife Fran, my publisher Ave Maria Press, my agent, my editors, and most especially the monks of the Monastery of the Holy Spirit for their support in making this book happen.
