Back in September, I was the astonished recipient of the Aine Marie Chadwick Trophy at the National Association of Writers’ Group Awards for my take on a ghost story, The Pause.
That story, along with the other winners writing was put into an anthology, and I received my copy this week. I’ve been called many things, in my time, but being described as an award winning writer was pretty special.
It isn’t the only new title that I need to come to terms with this week, though. I was expecting my first delivery of Alfie Slider vs the Shape Shifter in January, but had the delightful sensation of unpacking a box of my own books before Christmas instead! Holding the book in my hands, I realised that I could now call myself an author.
Sarah Dixon. Author, and award winning writer.
I wonder what other titles 2017 will bring?
