More good news


I am delighted to have won third prize in the Oxford Flash Fiction Prize for Summer 2021. The winning flashes can be found on the competition site here.

Congratulations to all the winners and those short and longlisted and a big thank you to the organisers and judges.


This time the news is fresh ...


I said that it would be good if I could start a post without having to apologise that it had taken me so long to impart any news.

Well, this is that post!

Delighted to have had a short story make the longlist in The Scottish Arts Club Short Story 2021. Congratulations to all those who made the shortlist and I look forward to seeing who the winners are in October.

One day I will start ...


… without an apology about not updating my news regularly.

Not today though – so, sorry for the long absence. But I do have good news. I was longlisted in this year’s Bath Short Story Award.

Huge congratulations to those others who made the longlist and shortlist and the eventual winners.
