The Pendelton May Award 

The news is several weeks later, but no matter: faithful reader Babs Horton has written in to let me know that she was the recipient of the Pendleton May Award for Best First Novel of 2003 for the well-received (and deservedly so) A JARFUL OF ANGELS. She triumphed over an impressive shortlist which included the likes of Mark Haddon's THE CURIOUS INCIDENT OF THE DOG IN THE NIGHT-TIME and Edward Docx's THE CALLIGRAPHER.

Congratulations, Babs, and I know I'm not the only one looking forward to the next book, which will be out in the summertime from Simon & Schuster UK.
