Hunted Has Been Shortlisted for the 2013 Ruth and Sylvia Schwartz Award!

I’m excited–and honored–to announce that my YA sci-fi/paranormal fantasy HUNTED has been shortlisted for the 2013 Ruth and Sylvia Schwartz Award!

The release says: “This year’s short list includes some of Canada’s best-known and award-winning children’s book authors and illustrators. The Children’s Picture Book category showcases diverse illustration and story styles, ranging from elaborate fantasy worlds, rhyming wishes and dreams, to a story about doing the right thing. The Young Adult / Middle Reader category challenges its readers with science-fiction tales and trials of families.”

Hunted is in the YA category, along with The Grave Robber’s Apprentice by Allan Stratton, Seraphina by Rachel Hartman, A Tinfoil Sky by Cyndi Sand-Eveland , and The Reluctant Journal of Henry K. Larsen by Susin Nielsen. The 2013 winners will be announced at Etobicoke’s North Kipling Junior Middle School, 2 Rowntree Road, Etobicoke, ON at 1 p.m. on May 23, 2013.

HUNTED is also a finalist for the Monica Hughes Award for Science Fiction and Fantasy.
