Jessie has been longlisted for the Dobbie Literary Award for her novel Darkness on the Edge of Town.  This award aims to encourage the work of first-time published Australian women writers of both fiction and nonfiction.

Chair of the judging panel, Brigid Rooney, stated: ‘2013 is a particularly strong year for Australian women writers, so much so that we felt it important to recognise the full longlist … and ensure the writers get the recognition they deserve.’
