I was incredibly honored to learn that I was shortlisted for Stonewall’s Writer of the Year.  Stonewall is an amazing organization, and I am proud to be connected in any way to the work they do.  Being named alongside Jeanette Winterson (who has always been a literary hero of mine), as well as the amazing Patrick Gale makes it all the more humbling.  I had the good fortune to meet Patrick and hear him speak at the Cape Town Open Book festival last year, and I can offer this advice: if you ever get the chance to go to one of his events, you must.  A more lovely, funny and smart individual you will not find.  Also, his written Jane Austen imitation is AMAZING.
