"When I took the phone call telling me I'd won the Bridport prize for my first novel, I was so excited I walked with the phone out of the front door and into the street where I paced up and down, beaming. My living room wasn't big enough to hold my excitement.

Within a month of attending the lovely prize-giving event in Dorset I was signed up with the literary agency A M Heath. I am now working with 'my agent' (what a wonderful thing to be able to write!) and The Literary Consultancy (who, along with A M Heath, sponsor the Bridport), to hone my novel with the aim of getting it published.

The Bridport win means many things: validation of my work, an accolade that is recognised by other writers and those in the publishing industry, sponsorship to work with a mentor at The Literary Consultancy and, more than all of this, it allows me, after two decades of creative writing, to feel able to call myself a writer. That is the most precious thing of all."
