Best First Novel Shortlist

White Chrysanthemum has been shortlisted for Best First Novel by the Writers’ Guild of Great Britain. I’m honoured to be selected along with two wonderful writers Guy Gunaratne (In Our Mad and Furious City) and Nicola Mostyn (The Gods of Love). If you have time over the holidays, pick up their books and give them a read. If you haven’t read mine yet, what are you waiting for!?

Happy holidays and happy reading!

  1. I’m so excited that this amazing novel is getting well deserved recognition. This was my pick for best historical fiction of the year. My book club is discussing it Tuesday. Can you share what you are working on now and when we can expect it’s release?

  2. I ABSOLUTELY agree. I think a January publication hurt this AMAZING novel. PLEASE read it. I’m sure you’ll agree.
