Shortlisted for British Fantasy Awards!
I'm delighted to announce that my last collection, 'I Spit Myself Out' (2021, Sinister Horror Company) has been shortlisted for Best Collection in the British Fantasy Awards 2022.
This book was very important to me - narratives of female body fears. The germ of the idea has been with me since recovering from illness in 2011, and with it, a new sense of the vulnerbility of the body. Over the next ten years, this seed slowly bloomed, giving rise to a desire to explore these fragilities, and the special fear women have, the recognition that their bodies represent a place of permeability.
I am so thankful to everyone who voted in these awards, who bought this book, who reviewed it, and those who supported me when I was writing it.
Most especially, thanks to my marvellous editor and publisher, Justin Park of the Sinister Horror Company. You can support them by buying the book here.
