Saturday, June 5, 2010, the San Diego Book Awards Association presented their sixteenth annual San Diego Book & Writing Awards. Program host Bruno Leone, publisher of Lucent Books, announced this was a record year for submissions in the 28 categories, requiring 36 judges.

The awards honored two local San Diego authors, both in the Best Published Nonfiction category.

Peter J. Munson, author of Iraq in Transition: The Legacy of Dictatorship and the Prospects for Democracy, on active service in Afghanistan, charged his wife, Wendi, to receive his award for Best General Nonfiction.

Sheryl Roush, native San Diegan and co-author of Heart of a Military Woman, received the award for Best Spiritual & Inspirational book for 2009. In her acceptance speech, she shared her pride in San Diego being a military town, a former Navy wife, her father designed military aircraft, mother was a Rosie the Riveter, uncle died as a test pilot at Miramar Air Station. She thanked all those who serve, for preserving our freedom of speech, expression and writing.

After the program, Ms. Roush presented an autographed copy of her book to Mrs. Munson, also signed by co-author Eldonna Lewis Fernandez, 23-year retired Master Sgt USAF.
