Really excited to announce that my picture book BOO-KIN, MORE MILK, AND THE MISSING MUMMY! received ‘Highly Commended’ from the judges at Winchester Writers’ Festival 2015. The Picture Book Category was judged by the lovely bunch at Little Tiger Press and I’m thrilled that they liked my manuscript. They said I had, “fresh narrative voice… fantastically fun moments… great characterisation” Looking at the titles in the final 6, there were clearly some fab entries. Well done to everyone and an especially big congratulations to Alice Vinten for winning 1st prize!
My picture book text MR MUSTACHIO has been awarded third place in the Greenhouse Funny Prize. “a quirky, strong text, and an utter joy to read” Greenhouse are a leading agency and it’s amazing to have such great feedback from them about something I’ve written. They said MR MUSTACHIO was a “quirky, strong text, and an utter joy to read.” Can’t quite believe it. Need to frame that e-mail and put it on my desk. Update: 28.08.16 Mr Mustachio is published!
