Three more shortlists for Stellarphant

Fantastic news – Stellarphant has been shortlisted for three more awards!

It’s up for the WA Premier’s Book Awards in the Writing for Children category …

… plus Best Children’s Fiction in the Aurealis Awards (Australia’s national awards for speculative fiction) …

… as well as a Society of Children’s Book Writers and Illustrators’ Crystal Kite (a special award based on votes from regional peers).

These honours come hot on the heels of a shortlisting for 2022 Picture Book of the Year in the Children’s Book Council of Australia awards.

I’m so grateful to have Stellarphant recognised in these awards; it genuinely means a lot.
