Short Story

‘Drifter’ has landed

My short story Drifter has found a home in The Regal Fox. This story is grungy, raw and unflinching.

I am delighted to have a story published in The Regal Fox; this publication is dedicated to giving a voice to new and exciting writers. Looking forward to seeing this publication grow and grow.

NaNoWriMo – Week 2

The second week of NaNoWriMo was an interesting one. Life threw up some interesting curveballs and distractions with Trump, work and sport. I managed to hit 1122 words for the week; an average of 160 words a day. My total sits at 5151 words.

It is safe to say I am not over the moon with the weekly progress. While it has been a struggle some days, I have still managed to write every day. The novel took a back seat as short stories got the focus. There are two stories that have promise and I intend to get the first drafts done. I aim to write a lot more words this week; I have some making up to do.

Keep following my progress over the course of the month on my website and daily updates on Twitter.

Keep writing my creative friends.

Offset Project Director Alison Whan and I revelling in the good vibes at the Offset Sixteen launch.

Friday night saw the launch of Offset Sixteen at VU at MetroWest and what an awesome night it was. The editorial team put on a special event with engaging speakers and readings.

It was fun to see members of the previous Offset teams and my lecturers and tutors from my uni days. There is nothing better than hanging with young creatives and hearing about their exciting projects.

The journal looks fresh with it’s progressive and impressive cover and the works within are riveting. I am delighted to have my short story ‘Still Dead’ included in such an edgy and thoughtful literary journal.
