My writing

As well as reading, I’ve been writing fiction (and, in the past, plays and poetry) for many years. I’ve not been very good at submitting my writing to places, but recently I decided to submit an old short story to a writing competition on a whim. I was placed fourth! Luckily for me, this meant a cash prize, and publication on the competition website. You can read the story here, if you like.

I hope this won’t be the one and only place that my stories ever appear. This win gave me a real confidence boost, and I hope to start submitting more (and writing more). Watch this space.
