My unfinished manuscript Curlew Song has been shortlisted in the Page Turner Awards (mentorship category) 2023. It's a work of contemporary fiction about the healing power of nature.
My unpublished historical novel, Veldt Hunter, was shortlisted for the Wilbur Smith Adventure Writing Prize in 2020.
Veldt Hunter was also on the longlist in the Writing Category of the 2022 Page Turner Awards.
