I’m Pat Walsh. Hello and welcome to my website. Here you’ll find information on my books, a little bit about me and some glimpses into the world and characters of the Crowfield books, both real and imaginary.
2013 has been a busy year so far: I’ve been writing two new books and will post details about them on here soon.
The Crowfield Demon has been awarded the designation ‘A Junior Library Guild Selection’ for Fall 2011 in the US. This is typically awarded early, often in advance of publication.
January 1st 2012 – The Crowfield Curse was published in paperback in the US.
February 1st 2012 – the hardback edition of The Crowfield Demon was published in the US.
In October 2011, The Crowfield Curse was a 2011 Honor Book winner for the annual Austin Waldorf School Children’s Choice Award, coming runner up in the 7th-8th Grade category. I was delighted to receive silver medal stickers for the cover of my books. A big thank you to all the children and staff at Austin Waldorf school! http://www.austinwaldorf.org/
The Crowfield Curse was nominated for the 2011-2012 Great Stone Face Children’s Book Award. This award is sponsored by the Children’s Librarians of New Hampshire (CHILIS) http://www.nhlibrarians.org/chilis/gsf/
I’m also thrilled to announce that The Crowfield Curse has been nominated for the 2013 Grand Canyon Reader Award (formerly the Arizona Young Reader Award) http://www.grandcanyonreaderaward.org/
The Salford Children’s Book Award 2011 took place at The Lowry in Salford on January 25th 2012. A good time was had by all, and the very worthy winner was Michael Morpurgo’s wonderful book, Shadow. http://www.salford.gov.uk/2011bookaward.htm
The Crowfield Curse was nominated for the Calderdale Children’s Book of the Year Award 2012. You can read more about it here: http://www.calderdale.gov.uk/
