Redbridge Children’s Book Award (Teenage)
I am honoured and thrilled that I Have No Secrets is one of three books selected in the ‘Older Reader’ age group – and that the selection for this award and voting is by young people themselves.
I Have No Secrets has been shortlisted for the Amazing Book Awards (Sussex!)
That makes 6 shortlists, 2 longlists and the Carnegie Nomination!
Thrilled that ‘I Have No Secrets’ has been selected as one of 5 books for teenagers for World Book Day!
I am delighted that ‘I Have No Secrets’ has now been nominated for nine awards for 2018 – five shortlists (Leeds, Worcestershire, Wandsworth, Doncaster, Lewisham), three long lists – (ABA (Sussex), Redbridge and Lancashire) and the Carnegie Nomination!

I was privileged to be able to visit CPI Printers and see my books actually being printed! Wow! It was one of the most amazing days of my life.
Here’s the book on the press!

The Reading Agency have announced their Top Ten Volunteer Reads for summer 2017 and I Have No Secrets is on the list! Here’s what they say:
These are the books we’ll be recommending to the young volunteers supporting the Summer Reading Challenge later this year. Look out for competitions, author interviews and hack ideas too!
The final selection has everything from compulsive thrillers and ancient Norse myths to poetry on the football pitch and out-of-this world romance… As Skipton Reading Hackers described it; “There’s a lot of queer, a lot of strong females and a lot of death… Brilliant!”
