Joan Hessayon Award – official pics! Romantic Novelists’ Association #JoanHessayon 2017 @RNAtweets

Last week I attended my first ever Romantic Novelists’ Association event, and what an amazing event it was!

I was there as a contender for the prestigious Joan Hessayon Award for new writers, along with ten fellow authors who, like me, have had a debut novel published after passing through the RNA’s New Writers’ Scheme.

The evening went by in blur, I met some wonderful people, everyone was friendly and welcoming, and although I didn’t win the award (I didn’t imagine for one minute that I would – being a finalist was a huge achievement in itself)  I had a fabulous time.

Here’s a few pictures of all the contenders:

Lynda Stacey, Arabella Sheen, April Hardy, Kate Field, Morton Gray, Vivien Hampshire, Emily Kerr, Victoria Cornwall, Terri Fleming, and me! (Jen Gilroy was also a contender, but was unable to attend).


And here’s the lovely moment when winner Kate Field heard the announcement (centre, long floral dress)
