Performing at Ilkley Literature Festival Event and other news…..

Along with a dozen or so fellow writers from Writers on the Wharfe I took to the floor at All Saints Church House in Ilkley to perform live and unedited (!) my piece of flash fiction ‘Zombie Hunting’. The audience were very supportive and laughed (in the right places and gave me a warm round of applause). It was a lovely evening and there was an interesting mix of song, poetry and prose read out by the group’s members. A great bunch of talent.

Photos of this event to follow- as taken by hugely embarrassed husband-:)

I’ve had a couple of acceptances for my fiction this week- Horror Tree will be publishing another of my 100 worders ‘Tea Party’, and South Tyneside Talking Newspapers for the blind and partially sighted (a registered charity) have accepted one of my short stories, ‘Gone Fishing’, in their bimonthly short story slot, to audio record in 2018 and I will receive a copy of the recording. I was so pleased to have this acceptance from them. I think this is a wonderful way for fiction to be made available and I am proud that one of my stories will be recorded. It’s not a horror story by the way – but a feel good father/daughter tale.

I have heard from Women in Horror editor Rachel Katz – that the WinH annual is on its way and an e book is due out soon. 🙂 My short story ‘Mother Love’ is included. Below is a sneak peek at the cover. I am excited about this collection and looking forward to reading it.
