Aunt DeliveranceSuch happy news this week, Withering-by-Sea was awarded an Honour Book in the CBCA Book of the Year Awards. Yay for Stella and Aunt Deliverance. You can see how happy she looks.

It has also been awarded the ABIA Book of the Year for Older Children, the Indies Award for Children and YA, and was shortlisted for the Aurealis Awards and the Davitt Awards.

I’m so grateful and happy about how well the book is doing. Lots of lovely feedback from readers! I’m busy writing book 2 right now, I’m about half way. Working hard…
