Tyler Keevil wins Readers’ Prize

8 Jul

University of Gloucestershire Creative Writing lecturer Tyler Keevil’s first novel, Fireball, has won the Media Wales Readers’ Prize – the popular choice for the best English language book published in Wales this year. The prize was announced at a red-carpet ceremony in Cardiff, on Thursday 7th July. Tyler said, ”I’m really grateful that people have taken to the book in the way they have, particularly in Wales. A lot of readers have told me it reminds them of their own childhood, regardless of where they’re from. It means a lot to hear that, and also to win an award that’s picked by those readers. I owe a huge thanks to everyone who voted.”
