RNA, NWS : Joan Hessayon Award

Very honoured to be listed in such great company. Big congratulations to every one who was published, especially my Romaniac pals, Laura E. James and Celia J Anderson.

The Romaniacs

As you may know, The Romaniacs all met through the RNA‘s New Writers’ Scheme back in 2011. Since then we’ve all made great strides in our writer careers and, amazingly, last year three of us achieved our ambition of becoming published authors. This has meant ‘graduation’ to full membership with the RNA and sees us eligible for theJoan Hessayon Award; the winner of which is to be announced at the RNA summer party in London on 22 May 2104.

Celia J Anderson – Sweet Proposal


Laura E. James – Truth or Dare?


Sue Fortin – United States of Love


We are in fabulous company and wanted to wish everyone the very best of luck. We are looking forward to the evening very much and to meeting up with all the other attendees, especially the other new writers.  Here is the full list of nominations.

  1. Hi Sue

    Well done again with United States… and best of luck with Joan Hessayon Awards! Just saw the list on the RNA site.

    Amazing thing – having been shortlisted for Good Housekeeping New Novelist Comp last month – I had a request for a meeting from Lyn at Choc Lit to talk about ‘Politically Incorrect’ as a possible acquisition. She asked about hooking up at the RNA summer party so I might try and blag my way in (too slow to grab a place on RNA NWS this year). Us Arundel writers might meet at last!

    Fingers crossed for you.

  2. Hi Sarah

    Thanks for dropping by. Exciting times for you too – wishing you best of luck with your novel.

    And, yes, it is indeed a small world! 🙂
