Independent Publishing Book Award

Yesterday, it was announced that my middle-grade novel for girls, Dancing on the Inside has received the Gold Medal in the juvenile fiction category in this year’s Independent Publishing Book Awards contest.

Naturally, I am extremely pleased and honoured. The book tells the story of a young girl who must overcome (or work around) extreme social anxiety in order to pursue her dream of learning to dance ballet. Along the way, she discovers the power of friendship as well as her own unique talent. It is my hope that it will inspire girls to achieve their dreams despite apparent obstacles.

The IPPY contest involved some 2,000 authors competing in 75 categories. You can read the full list of winners at … Independent Publisher Book Awards
