I’ve been fortunate enough to have two short stories; Lifeline and It’s not easy being Clark Kent  shortlisted for the Bedford prize. The winner is to be announced at a Presentation Evening in the New Year which I’ve been invited to attend, though I don’t think I’ll be able to go.

Even if neither story makes it into the final three it’s still very encouraging and competitions like the Bedford Prize do so very much to keep the motivation for writing alive.

This is the second year that I’ve been shortlisted for the Bedford prize. Where the White Poppies Grow – appears in the 2015 Bedford prize anthology, available on Amazon. .
