'Seeking Snakes' was my entry to the 2016 MacMillan Children's Book Awards, and was also awarded a Highly Commended prize. 'Seeking Snakes' tells the story of an old Japanese snake catcher living by the sea on a small island off of the coast. Keeping up the islands tradition of making snake soup as an offering to the Gods, she hunts for snakes under moonlight.
