2019 RWA Service Award Recipients

Gina Fluharty

Gina Fluharty

Gina Fluharty never met a piece of profanity that didn’t taste like sin-soaked heaven. She’s lived in a lot of places: Australia, New Zealand, Alaska, small-town America, but nowhere has called to her like Portland, Oregon. It’s there that she wrestles all of her personal demons and turns them into playmates. After all, why exorcise such good source material when she can use it as research instead?

Courtney Milan

Courtney Milan’s books have received starred reviews in Publishers Weekly, Library Journal, and Booklist. She is a New York Times and a USA Today bestseller.

Courtney lives in the Rocky Mountains with her husband, an exceptionally perfect dog, and an attack cat.
