I’m thrilled to announce The Artists of the Margaret River Region has won a gold IPPY award in the Non-fiction Australia/New Zealand category at the 2017 Independent Publisher Book Awards in New York City. As the author of The Artists of the Margaret River Region, I had the daunting task of interviewing and crafting the profiles of 80 artists from the Margaret River region.

Receiving recognition for my writing in my favourite city is indeed a humbling experience, especially as it’s the second time around. In 2014 Permanent Impressions: a salute to contemporary heroines was awarded a bronze in the Non-fiction Australia/New Zealand category. Here’s me below like a deer in headlights at the awards night in New York with my dear friend and publisher Carina Hoang, which made the night all the more special.
