Shortlisted for NFFD competition and PlainsFM Reading

I am very honoured to have two of my three entries shortlisted for the National Flash Fiction Day competition.

They are “May 1941: Day and Night in Crete” and “Standing Water”. The winners will be announced at the Flash in the Pan event on the 22nd at Space Academy, where I will be reading both of them.

I will also be recording these pieces for Morrin Rout’s radio show Bookenz, which airs at 12 noon on PlainsFM on Tuesday. It will also be available as a podcast.

It’s all very exciting!


How to Sink and Live Simple, Like a Fish – Psychopomp Magazine

hurtigruten-northern-lights-tromsoThank you psychopomp magazine for publishing my story “How to Sink and Live Simple, Like a Fish”

I wrote this for a competition for my real-life writing group, South Island Writers’ Association. It was my first time reading one of my stories, and the great reception gave me a lot of confidence to continue writing.
