Winner 2017 Literary Classics Book Awards

I have an award-winning book!

On 1st July 2017 my latest novel, Once Confronted, won an award. 🙂

Once Confronted, my first contemporary drama, gained the Literary Classics silver award in their college fiction category. The Heir (Verindon #1) also won a silver award in the science fiction category in 2014. This brings my total number of writing awards to four. I also gained two Australasian Religious Press Association awards in my days working for The Queensland Baptist newspaper.

It’s such a thrill to win any award. This one has especially delighted me, given that the story of Once Confronted is so personal. After all, my protagonist, Madison, is the victim of an armed robbery, just like I was. Not only that, the book contains a strong theme of forgiveness, so I was never sure exactly how it was going to be received and this caused me a fair bit of angst. It’s satisfying to see it achieve something like this.
