Short Stories

‘I love writing short stories, they combine the excitement of narrative ideas with poetic crafting in a unique and exciting way. Each one is a stepping stone to a new place, an opportunity to inhabit a new voice or experiment with a new style.’

‘I’m so thrilled to be working with Orkneyology Press to bring these stories to new readers.’
