Exciting news this week…

Sheila Crowley and I at the launch of my debut novel

This week’s blog post is dedicated to someone who is being recognised for her brilliant work.

I was thrilled to learn that my agent Sheila Crowley, of Curtis Brown, has been shortlisted for Agent of The Year in the 2013 Bookseller Industry Awards. (For the full listing, click here.)

I was so glad to see her name in the shortlisting because she is an absolute superstar and with that, really modest too.

Sheila has been my agent for nearly three years now, and her support is hugely important to me. There’s no better boost for a worried/tired/nervous writer than popping to her office, discussing ideas and hearing those words she always says – “I know you can do it.” I always leave with a spring in my step, raring to go again!

It means the world, so I want to say a massive congratulations to Sheila for being nominated, and a thank you to her for everything she does.

It is an honour to be represented by her and I wish her all the very best of luck in the awards.
