Just when I thought my birthday haul couldn't get any better, a copy of Bonsai: Best small stories from Aotearoa New Zealand was slipped into my letterbox. My story Women's Studies is among the 200 or so short, short stories featured in the anthology, which also includes work by Tracey Slaughter, Leanne Radojkovich, Zoe Meager, Owen Marshall and many other of my favourite authors.
Also - how much am I looking forward to reading Baby, The New Animals and Hera Lindsay Bird?
A graduate of Victoria University’s Institute of Modern Letters, I am the winner of the Mindfood Short Story Competition and the Headland Short Story Prize. My short stories have appeared in The Sunday Star-Times, takahē, Fresh Ink and Bonsai. My debut short story collection, Pet, will be available from August, and is being released as a podcast. I have also written and illustrated two children's books about my rescue cat, Bruce.
