Twister: Calderdale Book of the Year 2019 Winner


I’m absolutely delighted to announce Twister won Calderdale Book of the Year 2019. The event took place in the glorious surroundings of Halifax Town Hall, where I delivered my talks in the beautiful Council Chambers. It was an absolute pleasure meeting the other authors Candy Gourlay, Kelly McCoughrain and the Mayor of Calderdale. I can’t thank everyone from Calderdale Libraries enough. They poured their hearts and souls into the day, which took 12 months of hard work to deliver and it’s all thanks to them they have so many children passionate about reading. Lastly, meeting the kids was a joy – they make the hard business of writing books worth it.
