The good news keeps coming. I learned today that Escaping the Giant Wave has won the 2008 Young Hoosier Award. This is the fifth time that one of my books has won in Indiana, a new record for me.

The five winning books represent three publishers, and include two mysteries, one memoir, one adventure story, and one novel that I don’t know how to categorize. (I only write them; someone else has to figure out what they are.)

Here are my Indiana winners, and the year that they won:

1992 – Nightmare Mountain

1995 – Horror at the Haunted House

2001 – Small Steps: The Year I Got Polio

2007 – Abduction!

2008 – Escaping the Giant Wave
