I am delighted to announce that my third collection, Neverlight, has been shortlisted for the Arnold Bennett Literary Prize, 2017.
It’s no secret that I hold Mr Bennett and his work in high regard, and to be forever associated with his name as part of the history of the award, well, it goes without saying that I feel a great sense of pride.
To be shortlisted is all I had dared hope for, and I wish to thank the judges for taking the time to review and enjoy my work.

My thanks also to Spectral Press, for believing in my efforts. Without them there would be no book.
