The bad news is - it's been a godawful summer during which I crashed my car and broke my ankle.
The good news is - my story "Sparrow" has been shortlisted for the Seán Ó Faoláin Short Story Competition Prize. You can see the shortlist here. 22 stories out of the 849 entries for the competition have been shortlisted, and I'm so happy mine has been selected. Congratulations, all!
