I am excited to share that Simon of Cyrene and the Legend of the Easter Egg has won the 2018 CPA Books Award Honorable Mention in the Children’s Books and Books for Teens Division. CPA (Catholic Press Association of the United States and Canada).
Chris Clancy, Editor, of the Prairie Catholic Newspaper of the New Ulm Diocese, emailed me and said, “Terri. Congratulations! As a member of CPA for over 30 years, I do know that competition is steep. Well done!” It is always excited and rewarding to have your book recognized but Chris’ words warmed my heart.
Sister Marlyn and Sister Julie at Pauline Press & Media – Kids Press worked extremely hard to make Simon a reality. I can’t thank them enough for believing in me.
I would be remised if I did not mention and thank the gifted artist/illustrator Gabho Utomo who sharing his talents and made Simon come alive for the young readers.
