Mystery Writers of America Chose Michael Connelly & Joanne Fluke As The 2023 Grand Masters

“All I can say is I’m overwhelmed. When you look at the list of previous Grand Masters you see every writer that ever inspired you. So overwhelming. I first got published thirty years ago and I remember everything about it. To think that that guy of thirty years ago would end up with this honor is really quite amazing. I am truly honored.” – Michael Connelly
