This is the glittery page where I tell you all about the awards I have nearly won! And some I have won, even.
This is me with illustrious illustrator, Sarah Davis, at the New Zealand Post Book Awards for Children and Young Adults, 2014. We were there courtesy of that happy hero who you can see in duplicate roosting upon our heads. (It took me a full two days to realise these Toucans out of paper mache, and boy, was I anxious to please Toucan's visual creator, Sarah! She seemed most satisfied with him.)
It was a wonderful night, but as you can see, it was all a bit of a blur.
