It’s a huge thrill and honour to have been a finalist in this year’s Queensland Literary Awards. Broken Rules and Other Stories was one of five books shortlisted for the University of Southern Queensland Steele Rudd Award for a Short Story Collection. Thanks so much to the judges and everyone involved in the awards.
I enjoyed every minute of the live stream of Thursday evening’s awards ceremony from State Library of Queensland. The recording is available on the State Library website, or you can catch it over on YouTube. It’s well worth a watch. (The Steele Rudd Award begins 43 minutes in.)
Many congratulations to the other finalists and winners. Shortlisted and winning titles are available in-person or online from SLQ’s Library Shop.
Happy reading and writing!

So exciting to ‘be there’ Barry and watch ‘Broken Rules…’ showcased with the other finalists. Not mention the wonderful acceptance speeches. Congratulations again!
Thanks for being there, Helen. I’m really glad you enjoyed it all.
