So delighted and extremely honoured to be awarded this year’s literary prize for creative writing from The Highland Society of London.
Writing is often such a solitary activity, and for horror writers especially, the phrase ‘blood, sweat, and tears’ couldn’t be more true! Authors in the horror genre often get very little recognition, so I am incredibly grateful and appreciative that the Society has chosen to acknowledge my work in such a way.
Huge thanks to this very eminent Society, and to their representative, the lovely Alison Wilson (on left of pic), for presenting me my award in Edinburgh this weekend. Such a special day, and lots of wonderful memories to treasure and inspire me in the years to come. Thank you so much to all! :-)
