It’s been five years since my first book was released with IFWG Publishing Australia and to celebrate, my novelette ‘The Little One’ has been made available to read for free for a limited time.
‘The Little One’ was shortlisted for an Australian Shadows Award, an Aurealis Award, and a Ditmar Award, and I’m so pleased it’s been a bit of a happy hit among readers.
‘The Little One’ forms part of my award-nominated collection ‘Coralesque and Other Tales to Disturb and Distract’, so if you like what you read…well, hey, there’s more where that came from! ‘Coralesque’ is available through all your favourite bricks and mortar and online booksellers.
I nearly spat my coffee out when the 2021 Aurealis Award Announcement came through via email last week. My novella ‘The Little One’ is a finalist in the Best Fantasy Novella category!
This amazing news came on the back of ‘The Little One’ making the shortlist for an Australian Shadows Award in the Long Fiction category.
I’m thrilled this dark story of a young girl’s sacrifice for justice has resonated with readers and judges. The shortlist for the 2021 Aurealis Awards is truly outstanding, and I’m so honoured to be on it. These works underscore how vibrant and exciting Australia’s speculative fiction landscape is.
