Our 2019 Lifetime Achievement Award went to Hallie Ephron

Hallie Ephron is the NY Times bestselling author of eleven suspense novels. Reviewing her newest, Careful What You Wish ForKirkus Reviews praised her “tidy approach to stowing clues, arousing suspicions, keeping the chaos of the climax under control, then tying up loose ends makes her a professional organizer of this type of entertainment. In a word—neat.” She is a five-time finalist for the Mary Higgins Clark Award, and an Edgar finalist for Writing and Selling Your Mystery Novel.
The award is given each year to a person or persons who have contributed to the New England mystery community with generosity and vision. A scholarship to the following year’s New England Crime Bake will be awarded the following year in her name to a person with financial need who demonstrates the same spirit of community. The award will be presented at the banquet on Saturday night.
