I’m pleased to say that my first novel One Hundredth has made the final six.
Billy Elliot meets Cool Running’s.
One Hundredth is the story of MICHEAL MILLER, a 16 year old living in poverty on a Manchester housing estate. It follows his journey from deprivation to finally competing in the most prestigious event in men’s downhill skiing. Michael’s family history is another strand of the story told through his Great, Great, Grandfather. Born into slavery, but he escapes his shackles to a better life, which runs parallel to Michael’s journey.
Good Luck to the other five authors who are short-listed!!!
