Annette Münch has published her YA novel, Badboy (Cappelen Damm, September 2014) in her home country of Norway. If that wasn’t exciting enough, Annette then won The Brage Prize (Children and Young Adults category), one of Norway’s most prestigious literary prizes. Rights to the novel have also been sold to Denmark.
She workshopped Badboy, about young users of anabolic steroids, in Eduardo Santiago’s Novel Writing II, which she says was well worth the investment. “It was an inspiring and positive experience being a part of the creative environment in Eduardo’s course,” Annette says. “Thanks for giving me the inspiration to continue writing. The course I took definitely paid off for me!”
