On being longlisted: SCBWI Undiscovered Voices 2018

My Oh My, you fabulous lot you…I’m shaking with excitement! 

For a number of years now some of you have been following my writing adventures with excitement, some with regular comments of ‘when are you getting published’, some with - let’s face it - waning tolerance at the never ending stream of text shoved into your hands/inboxes/garden hedges with pleas for feedback.

It has not been in vain.


I’m super excited to be able to tell you all that I have been Longlisted for the Society of Children’s Book Writers and Illustrator’s flagship 'Undiscovered Voices’ 2018. #UV18

Two things

1) Looking down the list I am so excited to be amongst friends! Some fantastic writers I know are on the list, I just want to hug and squee with you all!

2) I have so many people to thank - but I’ll save it all for when/if I get an Oscar for best *anything*. Until then, one person gets the bulk of the love: Vanessa Harbour. 

Thank you! Jude is one step closer to the real world
