Stef Penney wins Costa Book of the Year

London author Stef Penney has won the Costa Book of the Year award for her debut novel, the Tenderness of Wolves, reports BBC News.
The book is set in Canada - a country the author has never visited because she had agoraphobia.

The award - formerly the Whitbread Prize - pits five winners of separate categories against each other for the Book of the Year.

Penney, aged 37 and a screenwriter, won the "first book" award before scooping the top £25,000 prize.
