This journey began with a series of short stories that I wanted to put into a collection. Maybe that will still happen, who knows.
My first international success came in the form of a story that grew out of rabbit, called Counting to Ten. It won the Global Short Stories first place for the month of September and then won the 2012 overall award for the year.
Since then, three stories (500 Words for Snow, The Baby Who Came to Stay & The Man on the Night Train From Krakow) have been published in Writers’ Forum Magazine, with another (Looking for Amber) due to be published in early 2014.
