Katie Fforde triumphs at RNA awards

7th March 2012

Katie Fforde was among the category winners at the Romantic Novelists' Association (RNA) Awards, which recognise the finest works in the genre written in the past 12 months.

Fforde, who is president of the RNA, was triumphant in the Contemporary Romantic Novel category for her latest book Summer of Love, which is now in contention for the overall Romance Novel of the Year prize.

She will be up against Rosie Thomas, who scooped the Epic Romantic Novel award for The Kashmir Shawl, as well the Historical Romantic Novel prize winner Christina Courtenay, who was chosen for her latest work Highland Storms.

The other winners include Jane Lovering, winner of the Romantic Comedy Novel of the Year Award for Please Don't Stop the Music, and Caroline Green, who triumphed in the Young Adult Romantic Novel category with Dark Ride.

Each of the five titles will now compete for the Romance Novel of the Year award, though choosing a winner will be difficult, according to prize judge and Foyles web editor Jonathan Ruppin.

'Romantic fiction has moved with the times and diversified along with the taste of readers. There are some very skilled writers in contention, tackling some absorbing issues, and we have a terrific list of books to consider,' he commented.

'It's going to be very hard to narrow it down to a winner.'

The overall winner will be announced on May 17th and follow in the footsteps of Jojo Moyes, who scooped last year's award for The Last Letter From Your Lover.
