National Flash Fiction Day Anthology

News today that I’ve had a story accepted for the National Flash Fiction Day anthology. Details available here:

and the main NFFD site is here:

My story, Fiver, will appear alongside pieces by several writer friends, including: Vanessa Gebbie, Sara Crowley, Tania Hershman, Alun Williams, Sarah Hilary, as well as pieces by Ali Smith and Ian Rankin. Congratulations to all authors appearing in the anthology, and many thanks to Calum Kerr and his team.

The anthology will be available next month.


Welcome to my humble blog. After a break of around two years, Unspoken Words has risen from the ashes. If you’re a new visitor, I bid you welcome, and if you’re a returning visitor, welcome back.

Don’t be surprised if the whole place randomly changes appearance in the coming weeks as I play with different WordPress themes – there are some really cool themes out there to choose from – but the content should develop along the way and, who knows, you might find something of interest to read or even comment on.

I wear various hats, but the one you’ll find most relevant here will almost certainly reflect my interest in writing, though I’m sure other stuff will creep in from time to time. Why not drop in now and then and see what’s new?
