COSTA BOOK AWARDS NOMINATION

This nomination is quite simply beyond any dreams I had for Wranglestone. Everyone, bar Little Tiger Group, passed on it. I think there’s still a long way to go before LGBTQ+ children’s authors and their characters are allowed to play outside of their own issue based narratives. I hope this nomination encourages publishers to find greater courage when acquiring books for children. All young people need all kinds of stories and to see themselves having all kinds of adventures, and to exist in all kinds of genres. To be the hero. To be the one who finds love. For now though, I simply want to thank Little Tiger for their gumption and the Costa judges for rescuing my debut from 2020 so it and my career have a shot at finding more readers. I feel let in and I am so very, very grateful for that. x
