I heard on December 31st that I’d sold another short story to The People’s Friend which was fab news to end the year on! That makes it four now (I’m soooo sloooowwww).

I love writing short stories. It’s great to have to write sparingly and make each word count and it’s fun to experiment with different ideas, persons and tenses. To date, my novels have been written in the third person past. My latest short story, The Family Business, is written in the first person present. It’s about a woman looking for a new job who, after two failed job interviews, decides to take an alternative approach. Sneaky!
