I battled through train and tube strikes to enjoy a wonderful ceremony for the Branford Boase award which celebrates the best books for young people by debut authors. It’s a really special award as it celebrates the author AND their editor. I was thrilled to be on the shortlist with my editor Jane Griffiths, who was also shortlisted with Rupert Wallis for The Dark Inside. Many congratulations to Rosie Rowell who won with her book Leopold Blue.
