**James J Kaufman author of The Concealers gets Nautilus Silver Award**


I'm so pleased to announce that the 2014 Silver Nautilus award goes to
James J Kaufman and his novel The Concealers.


Katherine Kelly's mentor says she has the makings of a good reporter, but to be great, she must learn to find the emotional core of a story and not hold back in its telling. Then he suggests one last grad school assignment: find someone who has influenced her family and tell that story. Katherine decides to pursue the only family story that has eluded her all her life: the identity of the father she never knew.

About the Author:

Jim Kaufman is uniquely qualified to write about trust. His broad experience and distinctly compassionate character is evident throughout a lifetime of living and working in the legal, government, and corporate worlds from which he has synthesized a powerful message. His Collectibles Trilogy offers a message that he believes can restore those fast-eroding values that made our country great and which, in his view, can once again change our world and our lives for the better. He has written several non-fiction books, including Noise, A Problem to be Heard: Control of Noise through Laws and Regulations; What to do Before the Money Runs Out – A Road Map for America’s Automobile Dealers; Trial Structure and Conduct; and North Carolina Trial and Appeal.
