Virginia Smith can safely call herself an award-winning novelist. Last year, she won Writer of the Year at Mount Hermon Christian Writers Conference in California. Check out our blog post on that award here.
Well---she's done it again! She's a finalist for yet another award. Here's the announcement from straight from Virginia:
"I recently received an exciting bit of news. A Taste of Murder, the first book in the Classical Trio series, has been named a finalist in the Inspirational category of the Daphne du Maurier Award for Excellence in Mystery/Suspense! The winner will be announced at an award ceremony in July during the Romance Writers of America's national conference in Washington D.C."

And---there's still time to register for KY Christian Writers Conference 2009, where Virginia will be teaching fiction workshops.
