Short Stories

I love thinking up ideas for short fiction, then writing and re-writing. It’s great to see how a story can develop and take on a life of its own after just an initial prompt of – a fleeting image or feeling, a character, an overheard conversation, a work of art, or a memory. My stories have been published in magazines and anthologies including: ‘The Cinnamon Review of Short Fiction 2018′; Momaya Short Story Review 2015’;  ‘Wooing Mr Wickham’ (Honno Press); ‘The Yellow Room’; ‘Woman’s Weekly’; ‘QWF’; ‘The Lady’; ‘Woman’; ‘Best’.

My stories have won and been shortlisted in competitions including Momaya, The Jane Austen Short Story award, The Yellow Room, Frome Prize (shortlisted 2018).
