Edgar Photos

I went to New York last week for the Edgar banquet, where the Mystery Writers of America did me the honor of naming me a Grand Master.  It felt strange to join Dorothy Salisbury Davis, Rex Stout and Agatha Christie’s company, as if I were both old enough and distinguished enough for the honor.  In my previous post, I included the remarks I gave on accepting this honor, but I also wanted to post a few pictures.  I’m afraid I’m in most of the pix because I was getting people to take pictures of me with friends, but I hope some more wide ranging pictures will show up soon that I can add here.

Laurie Ferguson, a cherished friend, attended the party as Dorothy's representative

    You are certainly worth of the honor — and I’m saying that as a big Hercule Poirot fan. It looks like you had truly lovely night to remember…and a lovely dress. I’m jealous. I miss the days when I could wear dresses like that.

    Congratulations to you Sara!   We’re looking forward to the new book.   Joy and Jon Rosner

I live in New Jersey USA, i want to use this medium to alert all loan seekers to be very careful because there are scammers everywhere.Few months ago I was financially strained, and due to I was desperate about loan,i was scammed by several online lenders. I had almost lost hope until a friend of mine referred me to a very reliable lender called Mrs Cynthia Morgan who lend me an unsecured loan of $100,000 under 2-hours for business and investment without any stress. If you are in need of any kind of loan just contact her now via: ( for more details, I‘m using this medium to alert all loan seekers because of the hell I passed through in the hands of those fraudulent lenders.

  • Akio Ling

    I’m Akio Ling resident at 2270 Paul Wayne Haggerty Road, New Orleans, LA 70114. I want to share this great testimony on how I got my loan from TYLER JONNES LOAN COMPANY INT…my family were driven out of our home because I couldn’t pay my bills anymore. After been scammed by various companies online and denied a loan by my bank as well as credit unions I visited. My kids were taken by the foster care; I was all alone in the street. Until a day I shamefully walked into an old school mate who introduced me to this God fearing loan company (TYLER JONNES LOAN COMPANY). At first I told him that I am not ready to take any risk of requesting a loan online anymore, but he assured me that I will receive my loan from them. On a second thought, due to my homelessness I took a trial and applied for the loan, I’d filled the loan application form and proceeded with all that was requested of me, luckily as God would have it, I was granted a loan of $175,000.00 which I applied from this company and I’m glad I took the risk and applied for the loan. My kids have been given back to me and now I own a home and a business of my own. All gratitude goes to TYLER JONNES a God sent Loan Lender for giving a meaning to my life when I had lost all hope, so I made a vow to myself that I will keep testifying on the internet on how I got my fortunate life changing loan. Therefore without reservation, I strongly recommend TYLER JONNES LOAN COMPANY for anyone who needs a loan. You can get in contact with this great company via email at
