I was surprised and honoured to learn that Undercard made 49th Shelf’s list of Top Fiction in 2019. It was a remarkable year for me, a year of endless firsts. It was thrilling, overwhelming, and endlessly rewarding, and this recognition by 49th Shelf made for an extremely satisfying conclusion to it. It has amazed me how much people have enjoyed Undercard. Despite how much effort it took, I loved writing it, and it’s fulfilled a lifelong dream to know that people have loved reading it.
