On 22 October 2021, Jock took out the $50,000 ARA Historical Novel Prize 2021 (Adult category) for The Burning Island, presented by the Historical Novel Society of Australasia. “The winning novel demonstrates the irresistible prose, unforgettable characters, meticulous research, and epic storytelling for which historical fiction is known. The ARA Historical Novel Prize is a true celebration of the genre,” said [Elisabeth] Storrs, [Chair & Program Director].
