An early Christmas surprise



I am delighted to be shortlisted in the Mslexia Flash Fiction competition and included in their Anthology Best Women’s Short Fiction 2021.

Congratulations to all the writers who were shortlisted, runners-up and winners in the Flash Fiction and Short Story Competitions, and many thanks to the judges and the Mslexia team for all their hard work.

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.
