Wolf-Bann of Krallenburg Comes in Second Place!

I am thrilled to have come in 2nd Place for the 2020 Baen Fantasy Adventure Award with my story The Chilling Account of The Wolf-Bann of Krallenburg

G. Scott Huggins won the Grand Prize for his story Humanslayer, and Morgan Welch came in 3rd Place with his story Seidh. Congratulations to both! You can listen to them talk about their stories in the link above. Both stories sounded really cool, so I can't wait to read them.

I was able to speak a little about my story as well, but that moment went by so quickly that I wanted to add some more thoughts. I'd like to thank everyone at Baen Books for running the contest, especially Jim Minz, Christopher Ruocchio, and Toni Weisskopf for organizing the Virtual Roadshow. 

I also want to thank everyone who has read my work over the years, especially Mom (from the beginning!) my brother Chris, M. R. Oehler for introducing me to National Novel Writing Month, several former writing groups (Special thanks to Kyle, Adam and Jacob!) as well as my current writing group. Thanks Gloria, Jon, Kirk, and Richard!
