RoNAs 2015

The wonderful Gladstone Library

The wonderful Gladstone Library

The RNA’s annual awards event, the RoNAs, was held last night at the wonderful Gladstone Library, One Whitehall.  It was a celebration of the very best in romantic fiction and the awards were presented by the amazing Barbara Taylor Bradford, herself the author of thirty romantic novels.

The lovely compere Jane Wenham-Jones introduced the shortlists and the winners were:-

Contemporary category – Lucy Dillon

Epic category – Ella Harper

Historical category – Hazel Gaynor

Romantic Comedy category – Lucy-Anne Holmes

RoNA Rose category – Louise Allen

Young Adult category – Joss Stirling

And the overall winner of The Romantic Novel of the Year was Joss Stirling with her YA novel Struck, a wonderful story with a quirky hero and a multi-cultural heroine.  A truly worthy winner!

For me, it was my last awards event as chairman of the RNA so I was very glad everyone seemed to enjoy it.  I’m already looking forward to next year’s!
