Pleased to announce that my short story Hitler’s Alligator has won the 2023 Plaza Awards: https://theplazaprizes.com/short-story-8000-max-winners-top-3/. Bring on the awards ceremony in Malta! Judge Roland Watson-Grant described it as "a sweeping, layered tale. Grounded in reality and set in one of history’s most gruesome moments, this darkly comical story offered dual perspectives of man and beast, the capturer and the captured, with such pace, it holds on and never lets go the reader right to the very end".

Couldn't be happier at winning the Margery Allingham Short Mystery Prize for my story Heartbridge Homicides. Click here and here for more details. Here's how the judges described it: "A delightful, beautifully written story set in TV soapland. The breezy narration never falters as the charm of solving a crime creeps over the soap's fan. The judges felt Margery would have loved this story." It will be published on the CWA website later in the year.
