I was thrilled to be asked to be one of four guest contributors to Matter 12, a beautifully produced anthology of selected work from Sheffield Hallam’s Creative Writing MA. My story ‘Bride or Groom?’ takes a wry look at marriage and gender equality.
You can buy the anthology online at makingwritingmatter.co.uk
My story, Number 40, is included in Picador’s Book of 40, published to celebrate their 40th birthday. I am thrilled to be amongst Picador’s extraordinary list of writers (the book includes work by Jackie Kay, John Banville, Alice Sebold and Graham Swift, amongst others). You can buy the book from all good bookstores (!), or you can read my story on Picador’s blog.
I’ve just found out that Turkish publisher Altin Kitaplar have bought Ten Things I’ve Learnt About Love!
