Sarah McIntyre is the proud winner of the Leeds Graphic Novel Award (now the Young People's Comic Award) for her comic Vern and Lettuce.She is particularly pleased about it because the award was voted by children.
She champions the infusion of more comics into books for young people and encourages young people to make their own comic books. Blogging regularly about comics and picture books, she has taken part in anthology comics such as Blank Slate's NELSON, TINY PENCIL, ink+PAPER, BIRDSONG and THE DFC (now THE PHOENIX).
Her other books include Morris the Mankiest Monster, You Can't Scare a Princess!, Superkid, When Titus Took the Train, and the brand-new Oliver and the Seawigs.
Sarah will be assisting with the presentation of this Year's Young People's Comic Award on Friday and, as one of the judges, presenting the British Comics Awards on Saturday.
