Winning story in @mothpublishing Northern Crime One #Northerncrime Anthology

Northern Crime ONE front copy

Finally, after weeks of supressed excitement, I can share my news that my story ‘Memento Mori’ features in the Moth Publishing Northern Crime One anthology as one of twenty winning stories. It’s available as a Kindle download as well as in paperback from Amazon.

I wrote the story after attending the Northumbria University sponsored CrimeStory Weekend in 2014. A workshop I attended during the weekend, led by renowned crime author Margaret Murphy , gave me inspiration for the story. Soon after, Moth announced the competition for novelists and short story writers and I was able to submit my story.

It has been a long wait to find out if I was a winner, but well worth the wait! It’s wonderful to have my writing recognised as being worthy of publication. I hope you enjoy the stories in this fabulous anthology.
