Historical Fiction Company’s 2021 Book of the Year

I am over the moon (to steal a phrase from Alec and Pete’s vernacular!) to announce that The Stars That Govern Us was named the Historical Fiction Company’s 2021 Book of the Year! You can read the book’s outstanding review and see why it was selected on its spotlight page by clicking here.

Thank you so much to Dee Marley and everyone at The Historical Fiction Company for choosing The Stars That Govern Us for this wonderful award. It is truly an honor to be listed amongst so many wonderful books and authors. This award especially means a lot to me because Alec has an anxiety and mood disorder like I do. One hope I had for the novel was to write something more inclusive, and I hope this starts a trend towards there being more “OwnVoices” authors in the historical fiction genre.
