My story “She Says” will be appearing in issue #148 of Island Magazine, which will be available in stores on the 27th February 2017. This story explores the viewpoint of a non-verbal autistic teen, trapped with a Paralympian athlete in a city full of dangers.
It pleases me no end when one of my stories is selected for a literary market, given that I have earnt my writing chops in the supposed ghetto of genre fiction. It’s a thrill that I can deliver stories at this level, and I hope that readers enjoy my tale! As the father of a delightful autistic boy, it’s a real honour and a responsibility to tell stories where a person with an intellectual disability can be the hero of the day. I hope to write many more!
