I was surprised and humbled to be nominated for the preschool television screenwriting award at the Australian Writers Guild awards last night … which I lost to Rachel Spratt, for a script from the same show, Sydney Sailboat which is on ABC TV here, and PBS in the United States.
Pleased to say I couldn’t have lost to a cooler woman.
If you don’t immediately recognise her, let me refresh your memory: R. A. Spratt is the author of the phenomenally funny Nanny Piggins and Friday Barnes books, a Converse wearer at cocktail events, a fellow fast-talker, and 115kg deadlifter.
An honour to lose to such a legend! (Note that I plan on taking her in the next few years:)
