‘On Day Forty We Checked Out’ published by Ellipsis Zine October 2022

‘Nothing Untoward’ published by Selcouth Station July 2022

‘The Fanishing Ones’ published by Bear Creek Gazette May 2022 – my first horror story (content warning: missing children)

Gem’s final tour in the world-saving vanguard’ published by Punk Noir Magazine November 2021 – explores the specific kind of burnout that can afflict people working in the field of sustainability/climate campaigning

‘Ode to Tony Brogues’ published by Punk Noir Magazine June 2021 – the closest thing I’ve written to autofiction

‘The Fountainhead of Cringe’ published by Idle Ink December 2020 – a comedic fantasy piece (very silly!)

‘The Intimacy of the Plish Sitter’ published by Comma Press in ‘Distancing: Short Stories By New Bristol Writers’ July 2020. This link will take you to the Amazon e-book (UK only) where you can read all the contributors’ stories for a bargain 99p. The anthology was the result of the superb Comma Press course led by Ken Elkes. You can read my story for free here. As my first longer form piece – with characters that I loved writing – I have a massive soft spot for this one.
