Welcome

. . . to my website!

You'll find lots of extras and info about my YA novel, SMART - now nominated for 20 book awards, including the national Children's Book Award 16, Carnegie Prize 15 and the Waterstones Children's Book Prize 15 and masses of fantastic regional awards that mean so much because lots are voted for by the children themselves.

SMART is WINNER of the Leeds Book Award 15, the St Helen's Book Award (BASH) 15, the Tower Hamlets Book Award 15 and the EMBA Geoffrey Trease Children's Book Award 15.

Catch up here with my new book 'A Seven-Letter Word', published 24th March 2016...not to mention the chance to win stuff in regular competitions!

If you've read SMART, please do drop me a line on my 'contact' page or email KimSlaterAuthor@yahoo.co.uk and let me know if you enjoyed it.

Best wishes,

Kim
