Launch of Bath Short Story Award 2017 Anthology

On Tuesday 28 November I attended the launch of the Bath Short Story Award 2017 Anthology.  It was held at the fabulously named Mr B's Emporium of Reading Delights in Bath (worth a visit), and Bath was looking very sparkly and festive.  The event was a chance to meet the winners and other shortlisted writers included in the anthology - and we all read an excerpt from our stories.

Jude, Anna and Jane, the organisers of the Award, had asked us all to read a short extract, so here I am reading the first page from my shortlisted story 'Hunger in the Air'.  We also had fabulous readings from the 1st, 2nd and 3rd prize-winners including Kathy Stevens, Mary Griese, and Sarah Mackey, and many others.

I'm thrilled to have a story published in the anthology, and to be in such illustrious company!  And you can buy it here
