8:49am Friday 18th May 2012 in Ryedale news
RYEDALE author and school technician Jane Lovering has won a national award with her first novel.
The Romantic Novel Of The Year title is the second for Please Don’t Stop the Music, which earlier this year was named as the Romantic Comedy Novel. Both awards are run by the Romantic Novelists’ Association (RNA).
The mother-of-five from Kirkbymoorside who works at Lady Lumley’s School, Pickering, said she had been “flabbergasted” when her novel was short-listed for the latest award.
Anne Ashurst, RNA chairman, said: “Warmest congratulations to Jane and my personal thanks for making me hoot with laughter. What an achievement to become Romantic Novelist of the Year with one’s first novel for talent-spotting publishers Choc Lit.”
