It's a great honour to be shortlisted for the wonderful Scottish Teenage Book Prize, along with authors Caghlan Smith and Danny Weston. Writing a book is a sort of magic. There I sit, in my lonely study, scribbling away, and a year later the words scrawled on the page have miraculously appeared in a book. Now, thanks to being shortlisted, children all over Scotland will be reading them, seeing what I've seen, feeling what I felt and, I hope, loving my characters as I love them.
