Second visits

I'm over the moon to have had my story 'Visits' placed second in the 7th Strands International Flash Fiction Prize, having had two stories shortlisted in the same competition. Thank you to Jose Varghese and the Strands Team!

My thanks to Michael D Grover for including 'Keeper, From Life' in the Museum of Poetry

This poem was written as part of my research for the graphic biography of Mary Taylor. I was almost derailed by my distraction with Miss Emily B's work.

Flash anthology

I'm chuffed to bits to have a story selected for inclusion in the National Flash Fiction Day Anthology, with all these flash writers - lovely to see so many writer pals - thank you so much NFFD team, for this and all your hard work over a very difficult time!
