The King And I

Posted on Oct 24, 2011 in Latest, Short Stories

I’m dead proud that my short story Kayleigh was on the same bill as a new short story by Stephen King.

The two tales were be read alongside four other new shorts at the Liars’ League event entitled Fear & Loathing on Tuesday 11th October.

I voraciously worked my way through Stephen King’s books as a teenager, and can remember certain summer holidays that were defined by which of his novels I was reading at the time. He’s a big hero of mine.

Read my story here, where there’s also a video of actress Charlotte Worthing doing her slow, spooky reading.

On the subject of lit events, I was also really chuffed to be invited onto the judging panel for Literary Death Match Ep 18.

Hardeep Singh Kholi and Miranda Sawyer joined me on the judges’ sofa to hear Sean MahoneyFemi MartinTiffany Anne Tondut and Neil Forsyth do battle with words.

Sean was the ultimate and totally deserving winner. Definitely one to watch.
