Sponsored by the publishers, Random House, the Dagger in the Library Award is organised by The Crime Writers' Association of Great Britain (CWA). It is awarded for the author’s body of work. Here is a glimpse of my crime novels.

I'm delighted to say that I was nominated for the Dagger in the Library Award in 2008 and would be thrilled if I was nominated again this year, but that's up to readers who can nominate some of their favourite crime writers by completing the nomination form available at your local library or from the CWA website.

The nominated authors must be alive and preferably working in Britain. Entries must be submitted through libraries. Nomination forms may be downloaded from the CWA website or obtained from libraries.The winner will be announced at a ceremony in Summer 2013.

There are now nine novels in the DI Andy Horton series, with the latest Undercurrent, published in January.

The seventh in the DI Andy Horton crime series, A Killing Coast has also been nominated for the eDUNNIT AWARD at CrimeFest 2013.
