My book Finding Home: How American’s Prevail won 2nd place for General Non-fiction in this year’s New Mexico Press Women’s Annual Awards. The NMPW contest is the broadest of any media competition and includes print (writing, editing, design), photography, radio, television, electronic communications, advertising, public relations, speech, and books.
I am a long-time member of New Mexico Press Women and the National Federation of Press Women. I am also a member of the Northern New Mexico Press Women’s group headquartered in Santa Fe. It includes journalists, editors, public relations people, publishers and authors. Author Anne Hillerman is currently the president of that group. While I was unable to attend the convention in Las Cruces in April, I have been in contact with press women in the state.
