The Lily of the West by Kathleen Morris

Western Fictioneers Peacemaker Award Finalist: The Lily of the West

I was surprised and thrilled to be named a Finalist for my book The Lily of the West for the Western Fictioneers Peacemaker Award, not only as Best Historical Novel, but Best First Novel as well. This is a great honor and I’m humbled to be in the company of authors I admire and respect. The path that led me to write about Katherine Haroney, “Big Nose Kate” was a long one.
