On 9 June, Tom Vowler and I will be discussing the importance of place in short stories at the inaugural Greenway Literary Festival.

I’m pleased to say I’ll be announcing some very exciting news about a new publication in the New Year…CSS websize

One lovely thing I am able to share with you now is the cover of Cornish Short Stories: A Collection of Contemporary Cornish Writing. This bold design, by the very talented young illustrator Vita Sleigh, is full of the wild energy we see around us in Cornwall in every season. Felicity and I both love it, and we are delighted that The History Press feel the same way.

It has been a very busy and productive year for me, and I can’t wait to see many hours of past and current work become beautiful books in 2018. In 2017, I’ve had visitors to this site from  48 countries in all parts of the world – thank you to everyone who has taken the time to stop by.
