Stolen WINS the Southern Schools Book Award!!

Hey Gang,

This is very cool! Plus, two awards in one week ain’t bad, hey?! When winning the SSBA comes hot on the heels of receiving a Michael Prinz Honor Award, I’m a very happy author indeed!  ;-)

The SSBA is an absolutely lovely award to win because it’s entirely voted for and judged by the readers themselves – made up of 35 different schools in the South of England no less!  And what a fantastic award ceremony it was too!  All of the shortlisted authors were in attendance, as well as hundreds of representatives from the various schools who were involved.  I shall post some photos from this event as soon as they are sent across to me.

Here’s a link, so you can read more about it –

But in the meantime, here’s a list of all the other (fab) shortlisted books that Stolen was up against:

The Toymaker – Jeremy de Quidt

Bloodchild – Tim Bowler

Grass – Cathy MacPhail

Saving Rafael – Leslie Wilson

This last book, Saving Rafael, was awarded the Highly Commended Award, and Leslie did such a wonderful reading of the book.  I can’t wait to sink my teeth into this one and have a good read – sounds brilliant.

Anyway, photos coming soon.  Just wanted to let you know.

I now have another lovely bit of crystal to stick up on my shelf! Wahay!

Wishing you fortune and frollicks,
