I am so proud of my very first author, Cally Taylor, for winning the Elizabeth Goudge Trophy for her  1,000 word novel opening on the theme of ‘keeping a secret’.  There is an extremely touching account of the ceremony on her blog, and the story itself.   Be prepared for an utterly chilling and compelling read!

The first book deal I did for Cally was with the Publishing Director Kate Mills at Orion for her first two books HEAVEN CAN WAIT and HOME FOR CHRISTMAS.  The latter is out this November.  I can’t wait.
