Another Award!

In May, The Massey Murder was awarded the Arthur Ellis Award for the Best Non-fiction Crime Book of 2014-2015 by the Crime Writers of Canada. The award (a stick figure strung on a gallows!) joins three other major awards on The Massey Murder trophy shelf: the Toronto Book Award, the Heritage Toronto Book Award, and the Canadian Authors Association Lela Common Award for Canadian History.

Reluctant Genius miniseries

Toronto's White Pine Pictures, in association with UK partner STV productions, are developing the limited series Wire Men, based in part on Charlotte's 2006 biography of Alexander Graham Bell.
