Awards for Works

y separately published work icon In Your Face Rockingham : FableCroft Publishing , 2016 9306795 2016 anthology short story

'In Your Face will be made up of original and reprinted speculative fiction stories that deal with very provocative themes. These stories will be provocative and/or confronting but with a firm purpose – they are pieces that will perhaps make readers uncomfortable because they are a bit too hard-hitting or close to the bone, but which interrogate these themes and ideas, and make a point about the world we live in.'
