The winners have been announced! I just want to say thank you to everyone who voted to get me through to the final round. I didn’t make the top 50 this year but you can see all the winners here and congratulations to Matthew Reilly who was crowned Australia’s Favourite Author for 2017!

The final round of voting is now open in Booktopia’s annual poll to find Australia’s favourite authors. To vote go to the Booktopia blog and make sure that you register your name and details at the bottom to be in the running for an amazing $1000 prize pack.

Hi Jacqueline! I met you on the 24/1/17. I enjoyed meeting you a lot and I loved the garden party! So far I am enjoying the boook very much and I can’t wait to read it all! I am up to the part where she falls of her horse. I have also been reading a lot of other books at the same time and that is why I’m only up to page 49. Thank you for making such terrific books.

    Hi Ruhika,

    Thanks for your lovely message. I didn’t actually win the competition – I was in the top 75 authors but didn’t make the top 50. There’s always next year :).

    I’m so glad that you’re enjoying the books.

    Hi Olivia,

    I am so thrilled that you’re enjoying my books. I love Jacinta too (even when she was the school’s second best tantrum thrower!). It’s good to see she’s changed a lot since then.

    Gymnastics is amazing – I used to be able to do the splits but sadly if you don’t use it you lose it and now I’m not very flexible at all!

    Best wishes,
