‘Touching the Tender Parts’ to be published in the forthcoming A Furious Hope anthology!

My flash fiction called ‘Touching the Tender Parts’ will be published in a forthcoming anthology with the working title of A Furious Hope.

I’m really excited for my work to be included in this anthology of fiction and poetry about hope, which will be edited by Zelda Chappel. We are experiencing dark days, and with each passing day the world seems to be getting a little bit darker; this anthology is an anthology of hope in these hard times.

Though it sounds risqué, ‘Touching the Tender Parts’ is a delicate story of hope in a situation that is all to common. I can’t wait to share it with you when the anthology is published in 2017 (publication date to be confirmed).

‘We Need a Heart Transplant, Not a Facelift’ to be published by Black Market Re-View!

My flash fiction ‘We Need a Heart Transplant, Not a Facelift’ will be published in the second issue of  Black Market Re-View, an online magazine edited by undergraduate and postgraduate students from Edge Hill University in the UK.

I’m so happy that this story has found a home; it was fun to write, and I hope have fun reading it! ‘We Need a Heart Transplant, Not a Facelift’ is about a man who reads in the newspaper that Mary Portas is coming to town to fix up their high street.

Interested? You won’t have to wait long! The second issue of Black Market Re-View is scheduled to be published this weekend. I’ll post a link once it’s up!
