Very pleased to hear that my story, Girls On Motorbikes, has been commended in the Prolitzer Prize for Prose Writing by judge Jaki McCarrick. Congratulations to winner Melanie Whipman, runners-up Aidan O’Reilly and Karina Vidler and the other commended writers Catherine McNamara and Shauna Mackay.
Some weeks ago, Derek Thompson invited me to do a Q&A for the Strictly Writing blog. It’s about The Lost of Syros, my short story collection, and how I found my publisher, Cultured Llama Press. You can read the interview here.
