Cybils Judges Announced: Thrilled to be a Fiction Picture Book Judge

And the announcement has been made for the panel of Judges for Cybils (Children’s and Young Adult Bloggers’ Literary Awards) 2012! I am so delighted to be the second round judge for the Fiction Picture Book category alongside Darshana Khiani from Flowering Minds (@darshanakhiani), the lovely Joanna Marple from Miss Marple’s Musings (@joannamarple), Dawn Mooney from 5 Minutes for Books (@mteblogmama) and Jen Robinson of Jen Robinson’s Book Page  (@JensBookPage).

Myra is a Teacher Educator and a registered clinical psychologist based in Al Ain, United Arab Emirates. Prior to moving to the Middle East, she lived for eleven years in Singapore serving as a teacher educator. She has edited five books on rediscovering children’s literature in Asia (with a focus on the Philippines, Malaysia, India, China, Japan) as part of the proceedings for the Asian Festival of Children’s Content where she served as the Chair of the Programme Committee for the Asian Children’s Writers and Illustrators Conference from 2011 until 2019. While she is an academic by day, she is a closet poet and a book hunter at heart. When she is not reading or writing about books or planning her next reads, she is hoping desperately to smash that shuttlecock to smithereens because Badminton Is Life (still looking for badminton courts here at UAE - suggestions are most welcome).
