I’d like to thank the wonderful Krista Hall, my blogmate at Kiss and Thrill, for surprising me with this lovely write up about my nomination for the Daphne du Maurier award. The original can be seen HERE.
Diana Belchase’s Triple Play–Three Daphne Nominations!
by Krista Hall
Unassisted triple plays are rare in baseball—only 15 players can claim the accomplishment. In the writers’ world, unassisted triple plays are just as elusive. Today, I am proud to announce that K&T’s Diana Belchase has achieved an unassisted triple play—three nominations for the prestigious Daphne Award for excellence in mystery and suspense.
The Daphne Award, named after Daphne DuMaurier who wrote the iconic book Rebecca (“Last night I dreamt I went to Manderley again.”), is for published and unpublished authors of romantic and mainstream suspense, mystery, and thrillers. The unpublished division finalists were announced this week. Diana was nominated for:
Diana Belchase for At Midnight
Diana Belchase for His Brother’s Child
Diana Belchase for By the Skin of Her Teeth
Not only is Diana a talented writer across multiple genres, she is also a skilled storyteller across multimedia. In addition to her fiction writing, Diana produces author interviews on her YouTube channel, writes a regular current affairs column for Montgomery County Media, blogs at DianaBelchase.com and Sisters of Suspense, and is producing an upcoming cable TV show featuring author interviews.
Since I can’t share excerpts from Diana’s nominated stories, I thought I’d share three of my favorite Diana Belchase interviews that show how special she is and what a wonderful sense of fun she has.
Congratulations to Diana and all the Daphne finalists! The winners will be announced in July in New York City. We have our fingers crossed for another unassisted triple play by the super talented Diana Belchase!
