Brockley Max – urban myths


Here’s a recording of me reading Algorithms, written specifically for the Urban Myths event at Brockley Max last night, which showcased the work of my fellow WooA writers.

Still recovering from an epic evening of communal writing!

Three Mermaids


I have a bit of a thing about mermaids. The house is strewn with pictures and even a bit of stained glass.

So recently I wrote about a mermaid in my story The Real McCoy which  has been read at three live literature events by three different actors in under a month.

To celebrate here is the first mermaid picture I bought, which is a print by Fran Slade. Look – there’s three of them!

Fascinating the different takes each of them give it!
