It’s almost time to give my trophy back. Last May I received the RNA’s Joan Hessayon New Writers’ Award for my first book, Blind-Date Marriage. As well as the huge confidence boost and the prize money, I got to keep a lovely little silver trophy for the year. And finally I have somewhere nice to display it! A couple of days ago, we had a fireplace put in and now I have a mantelpiece! Look!

The trophy looks a bit titchy, but I don’t care. It’ll have a place of honour for the next few days until I have to package it up and send it back to the RNA in preparation for the next recipient.

So sorry you have to return the lovely trophy just when you've got somewhere to put it. :(

I'm very excited about winning your contest. I emailed you my address.

Fiona, I love your fireplace. It's exactly the kind I'd like. And when the trophy's gone away you can always remember how it looked so good there! jx
