Some highlights that precede Guran’s wonderful in-depth analysis of each story include: “All of the…… Continue reading Another brilliant review and a snapshot!
I must admit: I don’t usually read reviews of my work. Positive or negative, the reviewers’ words have a way of sticking in my head, taking up space that should be dedicated to other words — words that will eventually become characters and plots and whole new stories I can send out into the world…… Continue reading A marvellous review!

Gazing back at 2015, I feel a bit like Scuttle in The Little Mermaid, flipping the telescope to look through both ends.

All of a sudden it’s New Year’s Eve, the…… Continue reading Here’s Looking at You, 2015
I woke this morning to two brilliant reviews of ‘A Shot of Salt Water’, my contribution to the May issue of The Dark. The first appeared as part of Brit Mandelo’s “Short Fiction Spotlight: Spring Smorgasbord” over on Tor.com, in which the review of my story gets to rub shoulders with those of Seanan McGuire’s work,…… Continue reading “Brine, ships & harpoon-wielding mermaids…” Two excellent reviews of ‘A Shot of Salt Water’
Wow, our first Amazon review for Midnight and Moonshine! And it is *glowing*! For example: Lisa Hannett and Angela Slatter have together crafted a book that has given me the same joy in truly gifted writing that my discovery of Catherynne Valente brought me in the past year! What a comparison — thanks! Read the…… Continue reading In which M&M gets a glowing review…
Jason Nahrung has written an incredible review of Midnight and Moonshine over at ASiF — I love Jason’s reviews because they are always so insightful, considered, and enticing! Here’s a snippet: “The pedigree of Midnight and Moonshine was promising from the outset, right down to the cover design. Artist Kathleen Jennings was nominated this year…… Continue reading Wonderful review in ASiF
