Person of Renown: Micki Browning

A tremendous contest resulted in 103 members submitting 124 entries. Our Person of Renown, Micki Browning, winner of the 2018 Royal Palm Literary Award Published Book of the Year for Beached, had the daunting task of choosing her top ten favorites from the 60 winning entries. Micki, a retired police captain and FBI National Academy graduate, is the author of the award-winning Mer Cavallo Mysteries set in the Florida Keys. Thanks to Micki and our members’ participation, the Collection contest remains one of our popular annual events
