7E139E3B-77A3-4927-A4AA-19952D1CC6A6I am so thrilled to tell you that I am shortlisted to Starburst Magazine’s Brave New Words Award.

Starburst’s literary editor, Ed Fortune, writes in their call for entries in December that the award is for someone who produces break-out literature that is new and bold. The award goes to an individual, not a specific work, and is across genres and formats.

I am shortlisted for my editor-work on Pacific Monsters from Fox Spirit Books. And wow!, it is a great honour. Thank you so very much!

The shortlist is absolutely fantastic: Katie Khan, Adrian Tchaikovsky, Cassandra Khaw, Claire North and Jeannette Ng. And me. Congratulations all!

The winner will be announced at the Starburst Media City Festival 17th March 2018 in Manchester.

Huge thanks also to Adele Wearing and her crew, and all the lovely Pacific Monsters authors and artists.
