Hawkeye Distinguished Veteran Award, November 2017
I’m not big on awards: the work is what counts. All the awards in the world (or all the money) won’t make a bad book good. Furthermore, my gut reaction to praise is to feel embarrassed.
I am truly very proud of this award, though, because it’s coming to me for being an Iowan and for being a veteran. I am both those things, and as I say on my website, I’m proud of being both.
