Brides makes the PW Best Books list
The Brides of Rollrock Island has made the children's section of the Publishers Weekly Best Books of 2012 list. This is a wonderful antidote to the first rumblings of pre-book-tour stage fright. Seattle, are you ready for me?
I write fiction. My latest novel is Sea Hearts, published by Allen & Unwin in Australia—this novel is published as The Brides of Rollrock Island by David Fickling Books and Jonathan Cape in the UK, and by Knopf in the US, and will soon come out as Seeherzen from Rowohlt in Germany. I've also written Tender Morsels and five short story collections: White Time, Black Juice, Red Spikes, Yellowcake and Cracklescape.
