[news] the intern shortlisted for the 2015 gold inky award

So, this happened and I came preeeeeeeetty close to wetting myself in excitement.


Yep,  my first book, THE INTERN, has been shortlisted for the Inside A Dog Gold Inky Award, which celebrates high-quality young adult literature (still not sure how I wriggled my way in, but I’m taking it!).

Now, here’s where you come in: if you’re 12-20yrs old, you can vote for the winner! If you don’t quite fit the age criteria, pass on to anyone who does – the more the merrier. CLICK HERE TO VOTE.


Well done to all the amazing Gold and Silver Inky Award nominees, including Rachael CrawMelissa Keil, Claire Zorn, Justine Larbalestier, Alice Pung… the list goes on. Life as an author is filled with plenty of ups and downs, so I’m definitely celebrating this wonderful (and surprising) milestone!
