Two authors have been shortlisted for a national award that recognises new writers.


.

Alice J Miller from Gravesend and Francesca Capaldi from New Ash Green are among the contenders for The Romantic Novelists' Association's Joan Hessayon Award.

Each year 250 places are offered to unpublished writers.

The Price to be Paid by Alice J Miller is set in a village in Kent and Florida. Kyle Lawson's business lies in ruins and he needs Molly to marry him to help right the wrong done to him by her family.

Alice has wanted to write since she was 12, but only started when she retired and tested the theory that it's never too late. She is an avid Sci-fi fan, particularly Star Trek, and pays homage to a named Star Trek character in every book she writes.
