Congratulations to the winners of the Specsavers CWA Crime Thriller Awards announced on Saturday night at the Grosvenor House Hotel London

No, I wasn't a winner, I wasn't even there, but who knows one day I might be, or an actor in the form of Inspector Andy Horton from my marine mystery crime novels, or my thriller heroes Alex Albury in In For The Kill or  Adam Greene in In Cold Daylight might very well be stepping up to the podium, who knows?

In case you're wondering the CWA stands for the Crime Writers' Association of which I am proud to be a member.  And Specsavers?  Well you know who they are.

You can read all the results by clicking on the link below. You might even find your favourite TV crime detective has won an award.

Meanwhile congratulations to my fellow CWA members, the crime novelists who were celebrating were Belinda Bauer, taking the CWA Gold Dagger for Blacklands, her first novel. Simon Conway took the CWA Ian Fleming Steel Dagger for A Loyal Spy, while Ryan David Jahn's Acts of Violence won the CWA John Creasey (New Blood) Dagger.

The event, presented by Marcus Brigstocke, is being televised on ITV3 on Tuesday, 12 October, at 9pm. So you'll even get the chance to see it if you wish.
