I won the Mumsnet/Walker Books Children’s Animal Story Competition!

My story The Elephant Carnival reached the short list at the beginning of February and then I found out todays it’s a winner! It will appear in an anthology alongside nine other winning animal stories, which is scheduled for release in October this year. What I am most excited about is that the characters I imagined in my head, the painted elephants of the elephant carnival and their keepers, will actually come to life and literally walk onto the page. I can’t wait to see them.

This is my first children’s work of fiction to be published. Thrilled is an understatement.
