It’s not a stretch to say that Australian independent bookshops changed my life. Back in 2011, Past the Shallows was hand-sold with love across the county by you guys and that literally set my career path in stone. I am so very grateful. There Was Still Love came straight from my heart and it means the absolute world to me win this award.
