Welcome to Margaret's Website!

Welcome to my official website.  

Come on in and poke around. I hope you'll click on the different pages, meet my characters, and learn more about my books.

And as long as you're here, please subscribe to my mailing list over there on the right. This is the only way you'll hear from me directly. No one else ever has access to my list, so you don't have to worry about privacy violations from me. Nor do you have to worry that I'll clutter up your mailbox with more than two or three letters a year.

To my friends:
As you may have heard, Long upon the Land won the Agatha Award for Best Contemporary Novel of 2015 at the Malice Domestic Convention on April 30, 2016.  The very first Deborah Knott, Bootlegger's Daughter, won back in 1992 and now the very last in the series has also won -- a lovely way to bookend these 20 books.
I am currently working on a final Sigrid Harald novel, but that does not mean that I'm retiring from writing. Instead, I'm going back to short stories, my first love and where I began this career.
While in New York recently, I received the Ellery Queen 2015 Readers Award for my short story, "We on the Train," so I guess I haven't quite lost my touch yet.
I so appreciate all your interest and support over the years. It's been a lovely ride.
Hope your summer is off to a great start,
May 2016
