Exciting news! My verse novel- 'Star Jumps' made the CBCA Notable list today. Very satisfying. Its not easy to write in a genre that is not mainstream and a topic that tackles farming and drought- but this novel is close to my heart and was showered with tears through the writing and editing stages.
Well done Walker- my publisher with several notable books in 2010 awards.
Thanks to the May Gibbs Literature trust for time spent in 2007 working on 'Star Jumps.'
