NATIONAL MEDAL AWARDED
TO VALERIE PARV

Angelo Loukakis, Executive Director of the Australian Society of Authors,
after presenting Valerie Parv with the ASA Medal 2014

  “The ASA Board awards the ASA Medal bi-annually to honour members of Australia’s writing community who have contributed significantly to our literary culture. Your contribution has been judged outstanding across the board, from the quality of your writing to your hard work in support of other authors, the principles of authorship and this organization itself.”

"This is one award that has to be earned" – Angelo Loukakis

In accepting the ASA Medal, Valerie said:
"As one whose first books were chiselled on cave walls, I am honoured to be given this award and would also like to congratulate my fellow honoree for 2014, Nadia Wheatley.

My first published book, Growing and Using Herbs (Ure Smith), caused little fanfare in my family, not being a blockbuster or even a novel.

It took joining the Australian Society of Authors to make me realise I’d done something that mattered, I’d written a book and had it published, the first of more than eighty novels and non-fiction titles. I’m proud to be that rare breed, a writer supporting myself through my writing since my twenties.

In the Australian Society of Authors, I had great mentors, not only in matters of craft but also in the importance of giving back to a profession that has been so good to me.

As well as the ASA executive and membership, I’d like to thank my agent of twenty years, Linda Tate. She not only has my back, but my front and the top of my head as well, even if I’m still waiting for that body double I asked for.

Receiving such an important award decided by your peers has to be as good as it gets. Thank you so much.”

BIRTHRIGHT
“Parv’s intriguing story features a misguided astronaut villain determined to save the world….With a dash of romance and a bit of mystery to recommend it, this is one fascinating read.”
