Very pleased to have been shortlisted for a Ned Kelly, alongside two terrific novelists – PM Newton ( ) and another South Freo boy – Alan Carter, whose Prime Cut has been doing incredibly well ( ). Also very pleased for Angela Savage, whose wonderful The Half Child I reviewed earlier, and who’s become an online mate (looking forward to meeting her and Andrew Nette in person), who’s also been shortlisted in the main category alongside Chris Womersley’s Bereft (again, reviewed on this blog sometime earlier.) Details of the Ned Kelly’s can be found here –
