Golden Spike Wins Silver Will Rogers Medallion!

Golden Spike, The Iron Horse Chronicles, Book Three, has been awarded the 2018 Silver Will Rogers Medallion in the category of Younger Readers. I went to Fort Worth, Texas, to receive this prestigious award and enjoyed wonderful fellowship with the other award recipients while there. On Friday evening, October 26, a great reception, hosted by Charles Williams, the Executive Director of the Will Rogers Medallion Award Committee, kicked off the celebrations.

During the day on Saturday, October 27, the finalists joined for a book signing at the Fort Worth Stockyards as part of Red Steagall’s Cowboy Gathering. I received a lot of help from the Will Rogers mascot and banner while autographing my books.

Saturday evening, October 27, we gathered at the Cattlemen’s Steak House in Fort Worth to be wined, dined, and entertained before and during the award ceremonies.

All three books in the Iron Horse Chronicles have received a Will Rogers Medallion. I thank Charles Williams and all the committee members for the honor.
