I am delighted to say that I have a short story on the shortlist for the 2022 LoveReading Very Short Story Award. The winner was announced today (March 3rd). Didn’t quite make it, but my story, ‘Succulent’, can be read on the website: https://www.lovereading.co.uk/book-awards/vss/The-LoveReading-Very-Short-Story-Award.html
My new novel – ‘The Pols’
‘The Pols’ is a modern, dystopian novel set in Britain. Beginning in the final years of the twentieth century and narrated by Alma Fernando, ‘The Pols’ is a coming-of-age story set against a violent upheaval in the United Kingdom instigated by a group called The Polytheists. The novel charts Alma’s journey into adulthood and her increasing involvement in the struggle against the country’s viciously oppressive – and anti-religious – rulers.
I am submitting queries about the novel to literary agents.
