Margaret Maron Named ‘Grand Master’ by MWA

Margaret Maron has been named this year’s ‘Grand Master’ by the Mystery Writers of America (MWA), along with Ken Follett. She will be presented with her award at the 2013 Edgar Awards on May 2, 2013.

On learning she was a Grand Master, Maron said, “Me? It still hasn’t fully sunk in. I keep remembering my first MWA dinner when I was half-afraid that I would be asked to leave because I only had a few short stories and a half-published book to my name, so how could I possibly belong there with those luminaries?  Grand Master?  Wow!”

The news is especially heartening given that Maron was Vicky Bijur’s first client. She has been honored with numerous awards over her illustrious career and her work has been translated into 16 languages, touching readers all across the world.
