AWC presenter Sue Whiting highly commended in The 21st Davitt Awards

The Sisters in Crime’s 21st Davitt Awards winners have been announced and we are positively chuffed that AWC presenter Sue Whiting has been highly commended for her book The Book of Chance in the Best Children’s Crime Novel category.

From the media release, Sue said: “The Book of Chance was inspired by a true crime that took place in 1998 but wasn’t solved until 2017. As the story unfolded in the world media, I started to wonder about how the young victim at the centre of the crime would cope with the realisation that her whole life had been a lie. And it was this wonderment that led me to creating the character of Chance Callahan and the novel The Book of Chance.”

We are thrilled for Sue – congratulations!

Now, onto the winners.
