New Young Author on the Block

Young author makes good out of the slush pile. The media just loves these sort of stories: Alexandra Adornetto is a 14-year-old Melbourne high school student who has just signed a two-book deal with publisher HarperCollins. This is based on the submission of her first manuscript, The Shadow Thief, a young-adult novel which will be published in the middle of next year. She was interviewed on Melbourne's 774 ABC radio station by Red Symons this morning, and if her performance there is anything to go by she'll do very well.
