Now available: Lifesong


It is only the first week of a brand new year and I am really pleased to be able to start it off by  announcing that my short story, ‘Lifesong’, is now available to purchase as part of the anthology ‘Tales of the Fox and Fae’ from publisher Fox Spirit Books, as part of their Bushy Tales imprint.

The ‘Bushy Tales’ are a series of three anthologies which started of with ‘Tales of the Nun & Dragon’; my short story, ‘Benedic Mihi Pater’ was included in this.

The books  all feature cover art by Vincent Holland-Keen and have internal illustrations by Kieran Walsh. With stories from a mix of new and established authors writing stories in a blend of genres these are unusual books of fairy tales and fables for adults.

The cover blurb for ‘Tales of the Fox and Fae’ is:

Deep in the woods where wild things lurk you’ll find foxes and rarer creatures, the fae. Join us for tales of faeries at the bottom of the garden, foxes falling foul of their own nature, battles fought in the night where human lives hang in the balance. Not all faeries are good, not all foxes are hunted. Welcome to our Tales of the Fox & Fae.
