The Georgina Hawtrey-Woore Award

Delighted finally to be able to announce that my novella, Little Mouse, has won the above this year. Words for the Wounded run a competition for long fiction and non-fiction. I entered Little Mouse in the fiction for adults category. “We are thrilled to let you know that Little Mouse is the winner of our Fiction category. It is a fabulous book, and we were unanimous in awarding you First Place. Congratulations from us all.”

I’ve known about this for many weeks, but have been sworn to secrecy – so, of course, I had to forget all about it or explode. But my subconscious didn’t forget. Yesterday was The Day of Announcement and a light bulb came on somewhere in my hindbrain. A little voice said, ‘time to blow your own trumpet.’ So here we are: toot, toot, tootle tootle, toot.

“After Kristallnacht in 1938 Doktor Theodore Goldstein, his wife Lisl, and their small son Theo, flee from Berlin, across the North Sea to Edinburgh. There, for more than ten years, they build a new life – a good life. But then a friend from the old days arrives, and they find themselves once again facing ruin and terror.”

    Congratulations from an old ex student in awe of your talent – funnily enough I had just reread it this week – I liked it so much because it adds some depth to IDRN which was a fabulously witty romp into a very uncertain future. Just reading Wonders Will Never Cease now and finding myself having a good old titter at some of the characters in there. Best wishes. Steph
