Reserve Your Spot Now: First Annual Willow Award

18 10 2009

Get out your black ties and your best dresses, the Willo Award is coming!

In honor of the memory of two-time Edgar Award Winner and long-time Northwest Chapter stalwart Willo Davis Roberts, the Board of Directors of the Northwest Chapter has instituted what it hopes will become an annual event: the selection of an author with significant ties to the Pacific Northwest to be the recipient of the “Willo”: the Willo Davis Roberts Memorial Lifetime Achievement Award.

We on the Northwest Chapter Board are thrilled to announce that the inaugural recipient of the Willo will be none other than Seattle’s own J.A. Jance!

Although J.A. Jance is literally someone who needs no introduction to the members of the mystery-writing community, here’s a bit about this year’s recipient from her website:

“J.A. Jance is the top 10 New York Times bestselling author of the J. P. Beaumont series; the Joanna Brady series; three interrelated thrillers featuring the Walker family; and Edge of Evil, the first in a series featuring Ali Reynolds. Born in South Dakota and brought up in Bisbee, Arizona, Jance lives with her husband in Seattle, Washington, and Tucson, Arizona.”

And of course no self-respecting award would be much of an award without having a party to celebrate it. And no self-respecting party of this sort would be much of a party without the right master of ceremonies. And the Northwest Chapter is pleased and proud to announce that none other than renowned Northwest mystery writer G.M. Ford has graciously agreed to serve as the M.C. for this year’s event!
