Spotlight on Tanya Landman

Tanya Landman had a very varied career before she settled down to become an author. After her English Literature degree, she worked in the children's department, in an arts centre, and, most interestingly, in a zoo, dressed up as a teddy bear called Kevin. 

Tanya’s most recent novel, One Shot, won the 2020 Scottish Teenage Book Prize. The story is inspired by the life of Annie Oakley, an American sharpshooter growing up in the late 1800s.

“After the death of her beloved father, Maggie and her family are thrown into a life of destitution. With little income and no way to live off their poor land, Maggie tries to provide for her family the way her father always had – with his hunting rifle and whatever animals the forest would provide. But when her mother is confronted with her 'unladylike' behaviour, she abandons Maggie to a life of unthinkable cruelty and abuse. With no one to care for her and only the hope of escape, all Maggie can do is survive.”
