In the Spring 2014, I was inducted into the Indiana Journalism Hall of Fame (I was a newspaper and magazine journalist and a lecturer at the Indiana University School of Journalism before becoming a full-time auther.)

My textbook "The Art and Craft of Writing Historical Fiction," first published by Writer's Digest Books, was selected by the Indiana State Library in 2011 as Best Book on Nonfiction.

In 2009, I was the inaugural winner of the annual Indiana Authers Award, National Category.

A memoir is in progress; it will be published in 2015 by Hawthorne Press. Part of the memoir will be a reprise of the textbook "the Art and Craft of Writing Historical Fiction," which sold out in its Writer's DIgest edition.
