and the winner is….

Reverting to my 10 year old self , I actually squeal as the news crackles over a very poor mobile phone signal. Om Shanti, Babe has won Diverse Voices. Cannot adequately describe what this means for a first-time novelist and wish it could happen to everyone who has spent years  hunched over a    tear-stained keypad, reworking their story!

About helen limon

I'm a writer and I also do research on children books - I am particularly interested in how women and girls are portrayed in picture books and I get quite (very) cross about books that only show boys being scientists and engineers, and doctors. When I get cross I tend to write emails to publishers signed Dr Limon. Everyone else calls me Helen.
