Hachette Australia is delighted to congratulate Inga Simpson on her third novel, WHERE THE TREES WERE, being longlisted for the Green Carnation Prize 2016.

The Green Carnation Prize was founded in 2010 by author Paul Magrs, and journalist and blogger Simon Savidge, to celebrate outstanding work by writers in the LGBTQ community. The prize is named after the green carnation and as a tribute to Oscar Wilde, who often carried one on his lapel. 

The shortlist will be announced on Friday 28 April. We wish Inga the very best of luck! For the full list of longlisted authors and book in 2016, visit:

  • Where the Trees Were - Inga Simpson

    Finding those carved trees forged a bond between Jay and her four childhood friends and opened their eyes to a wider world. But their attempt to protect the grove ends in disaster, and that one day on the river changes their lives forever. Not every wrong can be put right, but sometimes looking the other way is no longer an option.
