The thrilling YA novel Keep This To Yourself by Tom Ryan was announced the winner of the 2020 Arthur Ellis Award from Crime Writers of Canada, sponsored by Shaftesbury. Ryan won the AEA Award for Best Juvenile/YA Book, as well as a $500 prize on the novel’s birthday, May 21. The Arthur Ellis Awards were established in 1984 for current Canadian residents and Canadian citizens living abroad. They are awarded annually for a variety of crime writing categories.
Congratulations, Tom Ryan!
My first book came out 8 years ago & I’ve since been nominated for several awards, but never won. On school visits I say “I’m a multiple award losing author!”
