'I'm truly honoured (not to mention ecstatic!) that Children of Icarus has won the 2018 Scottish Teenage Book Prize! It means so much to me, because it's an award voted on by the readers themselves. I've always thought of stories as conversations between the readers and the writers, so to know that the readers enjoyed that conversation, that they responded to it – what more can a writer ask for?'
