Siren – Winner of the October 2018 Bath Flash Fiction Award, October 30, 2018. “I loved this flash from the first few words and found myself smiling with happiness as I read on: I adore the colloquial, vigorous prose; the sensuality; the exotic, unusual details and the setting. An excellent flash that encompasses the whole of a historic love story with energy, economy and gorgeous language.” Nuala O’Connor, Judge. Selected for Best Microfiction 2019, Pelekinesis Press, and for Best Small Fictions 2019, Sonder Press.

The Chemistry of Living Things – Winner, Fish Flash Fiction Award 2018, Published in the Fish Anthology 2018, July 2018. “What wonderful language in this story. Loop-de-loopy, fizz, and dazzle create a great tension between the internal and external states of the character. The mundane party, the pills that get her through, and then the beautiful, mysterious deer at the end create a depth that makes this story seem longer than its word length. This story has all of the qualities I love in a good piece of flash fiction. It tells a story in a way that is uniformly unique and compelling—compressed, expansive, and surprising.” Sherrie Flick, Judge. Selected to be included in Best Microfiction 2019, Pelekinesis Press.
