I’ve been a little quiet on here recently as although life has been busy, I haven’t had much writing news to share. I’m happy to say that that is about to change as one of my pieces, a short story about innocence and experience set in the eighteenth century (with more than a passing nod to Angela Carter) is coming out in print. The story will be available in Part 2 of the printed anthology, which is available in two parts – or you can buy the complete version.
I’ve always been fascinated by curiosity cabinets and I decided to use them as a metaphor for the idea of forbidden knowledge. This story was also long-listed for the University of Sunderland Short Story in Association with Waterstones Award in 2019.
