'Hybrids' achieves competition shortlist
I have just received a phone call from Sally Gritten, MD of the Childrens Books Division of HarperCollins, that my new novel, Hybrids, has been shortlisted (with two others) from a total of 850 submissions, for the Saga Magazine HarperCollins competition to find a new childrens' writer - "the next JK Rowling". It doesn't guarantee publication but is still amazing news. The final decision is expected April 20.
