Me-On Fish Anthology Shortlist!!


This is pretty amazing to me and as my good friend, Sarah, would say, "I'm chuffed." My story has made the (rather longish) shortlist of the Fish Short Story Prize!! This an international contest with over 1500 entries. WOW. Should hear if I make the really shortlist in March. Would make a rather nice birthday present, eh? Another thrill for me is one of the honorary patrons is Roddy Doyle! The Woman who Walked into Doors RODDY DOYLE!

You rock, Gay. This is the coolest thing ever (or I should say, "So far"). Fish is HUGE. And you deserve your place on that list. Everything is crossed for you!

So cool, you guys. Thanks so much for all your support! I am still a little in shock. I knew I was beginning to move the mountain milimeter by milimeter, but this feels like an inch!!
