This process, though slowed by a world pandemic, has been a real nail-biter. in terms of suspense. I've read excerpts of the works of my fellow contestants and I am awed by the company I'm in. First, to be singled out as a finalist is a great honor. Second, to be recognized by the Page Turner Awards, a literary institution, arbiters of the Queen's English, is to infer I was paying attention to the rules of grammar in school. Thank you, Page Turner Awards and judges for your encouragement and critical eye. Every writer needs both!
