Off To Little Rock!

Apologies for the silence, I have been rushing around America, it's been fun! I will blog about my retreat experience when I have a clearer head, tomorrow I am off to the International Short Story Conference in Little Rock, Arkansas (best know for Bill Clinton, perhaps -  that's his little Presidential library on the left).

I will be on a panel about flash fiction, and reading from my new book, and you can find out more about it all here. Looking forward to hanging out with (and meeting for the first time) writer pals including Nuala Ni Chonchuir, Sylvia Petter, Mary Costello, Paddy O'Reilly and Adnan Mahmutovic, and just talking about short stories! That, for me, is another kind of retreat!

Went to the Glen Ellyn's book fair, must give an applause to the children's story book, beautifully illustrated, well written, flowing effortlessly. The book is titled BUFO . It relates Bufo's life thru bullying to finally find his own niche. Very relative to today's children's world, where bullying seems to be the 'norm'.

Recommended highly. Go to for more info

Of all the places in America I could imagine you going to, I never would have picked Little Rock (I can't help hearing Marilyn Monroe singing when I think of it). I can't wait to see what you think. Only would a writer's life bring you to such a place with such people. Have a blast!

It sounds like you're having a blast. Wish I could listen to that panel discussion, sounds fascinating. Enjoy!
