I’ve Joined the Lady Cutler’s

While at the Apple conference on Friday I received a telephone call which I returned on Saturday and for about three seconds during that phone call I was speechless. I was being advised that I was the recipient of this year’s Lady Cutler Award from the Children’s Book Council (NSW).

The Lady Cutler Award is an annual award presented for Distinguished Service to Children’s Literature, the accent being on Service.

This is a huge honour and such a delight for me … and for Bini too (she is the one who enables me to do what I do). And still I am a bit shocked … especially when it was announced in PIO and emails pop in from folks all over the place with congrats.

So now I am to become a Lady Cutler … splendiferous!
