Best Short Fiction Award for Local Author Jenni Fletcher!Wed 11th March 2020
Congratulations are in order for Jenni Fletcher after she recently picked up the Liberta Books Shorter Romantic Novel award at the Romantic Novelists Association Awards! The awards ceremony was held in London on 2nd March and presented by Jenny Eclair.
Jenni, who grew up in Beverley and now lives just outside the town, writes Mills and Boon Historical Fiction and won the award with her Victorian romance novel 'Miss Amelia’s Mistletoe Marquess', published by Mills and Boon. Although this is the first time Jenni has won an award, she has previously been nominated four times for either historical or romantic fiction! She wasn’t alone either - Jeevani Charika, another author in the area was a ‘Contemporary Novel Award’ nominee.
According to Jenni, Milly Johnson won the Lifetime Achievement Award and Anton du Beke, Sophie Kinsella and Sue Moorcroft were also present at the ceremony as nominees.
Aside from being a busy mum, Jenni teaches creative writing part-time at Bishop Grosseteste University in Lincoln.
And if there are any aspiring novelists out there wanting to improve their writing skills within a group of like-minded people, the Beverley Chapter of the Romantic Novelists Association (RNA) meets on the final Tuesday of every month at the ever-active and engaged Monk’s Walk down Highgate, Beverley at 7pm.
