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 DoorsRODDY DOYLE!
