I'm delighted to share that I've made the 2018 Retreat West Novel Prize shortlist with my novel Small Forgotten Moments.
You can read all about the prize, and the other shortlisted authors, right here!
This year has been pretty awesome, with the amount of longlists and shortlists my work have been placed on. Many of them have been stories that mean a great deal to me, so it's exciting to have them appreciated by other people as well.
The winner of this competition will be announced in the spring. I'll have my fingers crossed until then! 🤞
I was excited to discover, this morning, that another one of my stories has been included on the long list of a major competition!
I share the spot with some awesome writers. Congratulations to everyone who has made it this far, and good luck for the shortlisting stage in a couple of weeks' time. I'll keep you posted.

What better way to enjoy the UK heatwave (or the weather wherever you are!) than curling up in the shade with a book.
That Sadie Thing is my 'greatest hits' collection, right from my first published story, Tasting the Grass, in 1994 through to the prize-winning trio of 2010 - Irish Green, Beth, and Omelette.
