Self praise is no praise, so here are a few kind comments from writers, editors and judges who have read my stories

Re. Inhabiting the Present - Fragmented Voices: 'The first person voice in this story is so authentically rendered that it feels like I am reading my own thoughts. Love the immediacy and delicacy of this tale. Genuinely think it’s one of the best first person narratives I’ve read in a long time.' Georgia Hilton, author of the poetry collections Swing, and I Went up the Lane Quite Cheerful

Re. The Violet Eye: 'A beautifully written and powerful work' - Laura Black, Fictive Dream
'The perfect Story' - Stephen Volk, BAFTA winner, author of The Dark Masters Trilogy
'A quietly powerful unfolding of what we send out into the world and what is returned' – Tania Hershman
'A poignant nine-pager.... The outcome of the marriage and its implications will not be easily forgotten by anyone who reads this story' - Des Lewis, Gestalt Real-time Reviews

'[A Soul's Lament] took a hilarious approach to a somewhat sombre topic [with a] satirical and observational edge. Reincarnation is an excellent take on the theme!' - The Here Comes Everyone Editorial Team
