In March 2024 I won a Golden Wizard Book Award for The Swimming Lesson.

The Golden Wizard Book Prize is the world's most prestigious children's book awards program that recognizes only the best children's literature. It is an opportunity for you to receive recognition for your magical work!

 It's a stamp of approval that proves you've met our exceedingly high standards and produced an outstanding children's book that will be read over and over again.

We believe books are like magic wands that transform children into wizards and witches, giving them the power to experience mindfulness and enchantment, far from their everyday world. We also believe books can change lives for the better, by making children feel understood, empowered, loved and safe.

We're proud to support amazing authors; the magicians, who make our readers' imaginations fly!
