Much excitement at Matthews’ Towers as SUMMER DAYDREAMS is short-listed for the prestigious Melissa Nathan Award for fiction about Love and Life. I’m particularly proud of this book as it was inspired by my dear friend, handbag designer extraordinaire – Helen Rochfort.
There are some fab books on the short-list, so fingers crossed. The winner will be chosen in June, so not long to wait!
