I’ve been published in two very different publications this week.
My Sister’s Eyes is published in the Federation of Writers (Scotland) anthology Sea Change. It’s a great collection – it was a delight to hear some of the pieces read at the launch at the Poetry Library last Friday.
I posted on the background to the story here.
And I have a story in The People’s Friend Special, Christmas issue. It’s set in the 1960s. There’s been a snowstorm and the trains are cancelled so seventeen-year-old Annie is unable to get home to the Yorkshire Dales for Christmas. Her rather scary boss invites her to stay with him and his wife – what could possibly go right?
One is an uplifting, heart-warming story,
the other … is not. No prizes for guessing which is which.
