I can’t believe I’m writing this, but last week I flew to Sydney for the ABIA Awards (Australian Book Industry Awards), and WHISPER ended up winning the Small Publishers’ Children’s Book of the Year award!!!!!!!
Seriously, that is SO CRAZY and I’m still in some surreal state of “What-just-happened?!“
It was such a brilliant night and I got to share it with the most amazing people ever, so I can easily say I’m still on Cloud Nine!
A big shoutout to my publishers, Pantera Press, for just being awesome, as well as to Bloomsbury for distributing my books and getting them out to the world. Plus, of course, to all the booksellers and librarians and teachers (and teacher librarians) for selling and sharing my books with people everywhere. AND also, very importantly, to all my readers — YOU GUYS ROCK!!!
Thank you, thank you, thank youuuuuu to everyone who has supported and encouraged me on this writing journey! I’m SO EXCITED for all that’s coming next!
