I am absolutely thrilled that my story The Wall, has been selected as one of the top three from the shortlist for the Interact Ruth Rendell Short Story Competition by none other than Dame Margaret Drabble.

I have been invited to an Oscars-style Awards Ceremony at the Orange Tree Theatre, Richmond in July when these top three stories will be read by actors and Dame Margaret will announce the winner.

I feel like a winner already just being shortlisted!

Clover & Bee have just published the third issue of their magazine and included a piece of my non-fiction, namely an extract from my Coronaviral journal.

Brian the Barrington Bear is on the road!

I have been invited to attend this year’s Clevedon Literary Festival with Brian The Barrington Bear, the children’s book I wrote over lockdown in 2020. Brian will have a stall at the event on Saturday 11th June and is looking forward to meeting new people!
