Published in Stringybark Stories!

I am happy to announce that my short story, Caged Birds, set in Amsterdam’s Red light District was highly commended in The Seven Deadly Sins Short Story Award which means publication in the anthology, ‘Gift of a Casserole.’ It is available as an e-book (in all e-reader formats) for $3.99 USD on Smashwords. Or pre-order as a hard copy, via Stringybark Stories

The collection includes stories inspired by lust, envy, greed, wrath, sloth, gluttony and pride. What a collection of sins to make the heart beat faster. This is the second anthology of short stories published by SBS that explores these dark human motivations. Presented for your enjoyment the thirty highly commended and three prize-winning stories from the Stringybark Seven Deadly Sins Award 2017

Danny stared through the glass at the young, voluptuous woman, her turquoise bikini luminous in the subdued street lighting. A gaggle of men formed a half-circle outside the window in Amsterdam’s red-light district. Danny’s bestie, Si, egged him on.
“Go on, Dan, she’s the one, dude!”
Danny’s heart sank. Why had he agreed to have his stag do in Amsterdam?
