May You

Towards the end of last month, I was delighted to recieve my copy of May You, The Walter Swan Prize Anthology,  It features great stories from the 2017-2018 long and shortlists, and also includes my story, ‘Touched’, which made the top six.

I’m very grateful to the Walter Swan Trust, the publishers,Valley Press, and to the anthology’s supportive editor, SJ Bradley , as well as the judges, Angela Readman and Anna Chilvers who said of my story – “We both really enjoyed the sensual feel of Touched… The relationship between the girls, which involves control, bullying and subtle cruelty, is convincingly drawn.”
