My latest publication is not fiction at all, but a Writer’s Weekly Planner I created to help me organise my (limited) writing time each week and boost productivity. You can get it here and read more about it here. It’s even available in two colourways, in case the beautiful turquoise is more your style than the sleek black.
I’m editing my fantasy WIP for submission at the moment, but meanwhile I have various publications – see below. For a taste of my work in progress, see the short stories at the bottom of this page.
My most recent fiction project was a collaboration on a children’s book called The Narwhallama … written as part of a Christmas present. We did it for fun, but I’ve learned lots. It’s for readers aged 8-10 and involves a nasty scientist, various cheeky/sarcastic kids and a llama. Get the book here.
I was the overall winner in The Write Practice’s Spring Writing Contest 2017! I’m so thrilled, especially as the standard of stories submitted was, as always, very high. I let out an involuntary whoop in a hotel restaurant when I found out, and then grinned through the entire meal. My winning story appears on Short Fiction Break – please check it out and let me know what you think. Here’s the link to the story, which is called The Porthole.
Meanwhile, I’m involved in the online writing community, The Write Practice, and have had three stories published through the writing contests they run with Short Fiction Break (The Winter Wolf, The Perfect Scar and The Shift) and Wordhaus (Grounds).
I got an honourable mention in the New York Midnight Short Story Challenge in 2015, the story for which you can now find here and in February 2016 Buzzfeed published Sex Misery and Cliffhangers, my piece on fanfiction writing.
Meanwhile I’m still editing, editing, and sharing my Friday fifty-worder fics every week. Check the tag fifty worder to find them all on this site.
Below are two short stories from the same universe as my work-in-progress.
