I’m very pleased that my flash fiction piece I Imagined You Different will be published in Retrospective by Palm-Sized Press. You can find out more about this delightful little press and magazine here.Front-Cover-The-Lost-of-Syros-9780993211928-Hi-Res-188x300

I also came across this lovely new review of The Lost of Syros by Victoria Field on Amazon:

Accomplished and riveting short stories mostly centred on the experiences of girls and young women, always vividly located in a specific place. There’s a sense of loss and confusion, of things not always being what they seem, a kind of fugitive grief, even if as in one story, there’s a happy ending when the lost child is found. I loved this book.

I’m delighted to have a piece of flash fiction in Elbow Room, Volume 16. For many years I’ve admired these beautiful, limited edition, hand-bound pamphlets which contain poetry and prose alongside work by visual artists.Elbow Room

New Zealand book review site FlaxFlower published a review of The Lost of Syros in late March. Many thanks to the reviewer, and to Bronwyn Elsmore who runs this free service for New Zealand writers.
