I am honoured and humbled to have been awarded the Inaugural Book Links Mentorship award at this year’s Story Arts festival. The idea for the manuscript that was chosen for this mentorship was first inspired at the 2013 Story Arts Festival Ipswich during a conversation with Sue Whiting (then Publisher at Walker Books) and other writing colleagues at the dinner table. Now, six years later, after various drafts and reincarnations, this story has come full circle, back to where it all began and ready to move in a new direction through the mentorship process. I’m very grateful for the opportunity I’ve been given and for Story Arts and Book Links for providing it.
