You may remember that Call Me Lion was shortlisted in the Oxfordshire Book Awards way back in September last year. They just announced the winners and there was no sign of Call Me Lion in amongst the titles. I am still waiting to hear news about the Portsmouth Y5 Awards which I'm guessing will be the same news. HOWEVER...
Here is Call Me Lion as one of only four finalists in the SCBWI Crystal Kite Award. This is a very special achievement as voting is only by SCBWI members. Not only that but I am alongside my friends. I know and respect all of the fellow authors in the final line-up so whoever wins I am happy (obviously I hope its me ;)) I'm totally thrilled to still be in the running and very grateful to all my fellow SCBWI members who read and voted for Call Me Lion. If that's you then THANK YOU! It really means the world.
Welcome to my blog, a place where you can keep up to date with what I am up to.
