'The Good Death Guide' makes the Wattpad Featured Story List

What a busy week! My short story THE GOOD DEATH GUIDE has been chosen by Wattpad to be a part of their ongoing 'Featured Story List'. The story was previously short listed in the Fine Line Short Story competition in 2011, so it's great that the story is finally reaching a wider audience.

The list promotes content reviewed and approved by staff and an editorial review board, so it's very exciting to be chosen. My story has already garnered nearly 2,000 reads, which is unbelievable really. Wattpad currently hosts over 16 million writers, so is a great platform to have fiction read by a huge audience, and the staff work hard to find work to recommend to their growing users.

I currently have four other short stories available free to read on Wattpad, mostly science fiction and fantasy. If you get a chance to read them, I hope you enjoy them!

KZINE issue 8 out now

KZINE issue 8, featuring my science fiction horror short story HEAT, is available now on amazon. Click here for further details.

It’s terrific to have been selected for publication for a second time in such a great genre magazine, catering for those who enjoy a wide range of diverse genre fiction like myself.

HEAT tells the story of a teenage girl who babysits an anti-social boy genius with an unhealthy obsession - pro wrestling.  I hope that the tale really hammers home the expression ‘a little knowledge is a dangerous thing’.

This story has a bit of everything I love in it. It took time and effort to get it right, and I’m extremely happy with the end product. I'm thrilled it's found a platform where it will be read, and hopefully enjoyed. And if you enjoy it, a review on Amazon saying so would be hugely appreciated.
