Crime Cats: The Deadly Scarab has won the Silver Medal for Preteen Mystery in the 2018 Literary Classics Book Awards. This is the 9th award for the series, and hardly seems real. I cannot express just how surprised I am at the success of Crime Cats, or the gratitude I hold for my collaborators, supporters, and reads. This has been a such a wonderful run. One which I look forward to continuing in the coming year with Volume 4.
Journalist/photographer Kevin Parks wrote a wonderful article about the Crime Cats Mystery Club winning the OELMA Literacy Leader Award. The article even features a photo of me with my favorite Cat Welfare resident, Sherbet.

My thanks and gratitude to the board, staff, and volunteers at Cat Welfare for all that they do—including making the Mystery Club so fun; to Susan Yutzey for nominating the CCMC; to the OELMA award committee; to the Mystery Club readers who have made such a difference in lives of the homeless cats at Cat Welfare; and to Mr. Parks for his enduring support of my literary and philanthropic efforts!
