My fiction and creative non-fiction have appeared in many places over the last few years. Links to these publications are at I Must Be Off! HERE. Go have a look. Many of these publications are in online journals, so they're free to read.
What I've been up to . . .
My story "Fences" took third prize in the Exeter Writers Short Story Competition. You can read it HERE.
I have a new story, "Father-Son Activity," at The Dead Mule School of Southern Literature.
My story "My Little Cuckoos" took third place in the 2016 Literal Latté fiction contest. I hope you'll pop round and give it a read and comment if you'd like: My Little Cuckoos.
