On Publication & Shortlisting: (un)Discovered Voice 2018

I am incredibly humbled and excited to have been selected as one of eleven amazing authors in the Society of Children's Book Writers and Illustrators (SCBWI) British Isles 'Undiscovered Voices' for 2018. Thanks to SCBWI and Working Partners as well as the editors and judges who volunteers their time to help Undiscovered Voices happen!

Of a life in rooms with castle corridors, and universes stacked on the shelves.

The little local high street library that was huge, it’s corridors endless as a castle when I was small. Nooks behind shelves, my hand in my nan’s hand, my mum’s hand, my dad’s hand, and eventually alone. It was so much smaller when I visited recently, no bigger than a coffee shop, but it was no less large in my mind.
