Not jealous, not hardly at all

I wonder what my writing life had been like if I had realized when I was a lot younger that it was possible to be a published author.

In 2003, Michael Koryta became the youngest winner of the annual St. Martin's Press/Private Eye Writers of America 'Best First Private Eye Novel' contest. He wrote Tonight I Said Goodbye when he was just 20. It was published when he was 21. Tonight I Said Goodbye went on to earn an Edgar nomination for best first novel, to win the Great Lakes Book Award for Best Mystery, and to be translated into several languages. The third novel in the series, A Welcome Grave, will be released this June. Showing that it’s not a fluke, it just got starred reviews from PW and Library Journal.
