My flash piece Phonology was published in Lighthouse Issue 13. Available for purchase here.
Lighthouse is a beautifully produced journal for new writing. They are open for submissions.
My Short Story K-K-K has been shortlisted for the @Writing.ie Short Story of the Year at the BGE Irish Book Awards. The awards are open for public vote, and of course I’d love it if you voted for my story.
K-K-K won the inaugural Neilma Sidney Short Story Prize with Overland Literary Journal earlier this year, and has recently been published in Award Winning Australian Writing 2016 (Melbourne Books).
I won AU$4000 from the Malcolm Robertson Foundation, and donated $1000 to the Asylum Seeker Resource Centre.
K-K-K speaks directly to the current global humanitarian disaster that is the treatment of, and lack of compassion towards, asylum seekers and refugees.

I’m currently shortlisted for 3 Irish Literary Awards, so I’m in something of an all encompassing state of shock (*coupled with an attack of the vapours*).
