I curtsey for praise

Just found out that a short story I wrote for the collection THRILLER 2, was nominated for a Silver Dagger by the Crime Writers Association, the largest British crime fiction group. The story, "Can You Help Me Out Here?", is based on a dirty joke I heard in 3rd Grade and didn't understand until years later. The CWA judges described the nomination:

Robert Ferrigno has showcased an ability to mix humour with suspense along with having a knack for creating villains that make you smile even as they send chills down our spine.
