My short story Undercurrent was published on the 7th January 2016 in the anthology ‘Tales from Elsewhere‘
I’m delighted to announce that my short story ‘Really Me’ is published in the Retreat West Short Story Winners Anthology ‘The Colour of Life’.
The story is on the competition theme of Insomnia and introduces Vanessa, someone who is not all she seems. There are several different themes covered in the anthology.
The short stories in this anthology, which is a compilation of six short story competitions winner and runner up stories, were judged by high profile writers and reviewers, and I am honoured to be published beside such competent work.
I’m very proud to announce that my short story ‘Brick Heart’ is in the Stories for Homes anthology 1 and my story I never Wore a Watch is in the Stories for Homes Volume 2 anthology. All royalties from this anthology go to Shelter charity.
Brick Heart is about an elderly woman facing housing problems, and the range of emotions she goes through. I never Wore a Watch examines the intersectionality of homelessness and learning difficulty, again through an elderly woman’s story. Every story in these anthologies shines a light in the importance of home, and what it means to people.
Lookout for Stories for Homes on FaceBook and Twitter @storiesforhomes #storiesforhomes where details of events, reading and launches will appear.
And most of all, buy a copy and help stop homelessness.
I’m a huge fan of flash fiction and I had a go myself. You can find one of my pieces in the ‘100rpm’ anthology. This was a really interesting project as the brief was to take a song that means a lot to you and write a piece of flash fiction inspired by the song.
My piece, Brambles and Silk, is based on Christina Aguilera’s song ‘Fighter’. (written as Jacqueline Christodoulou)
