I’ve just received my author copies of a new black dog books book called Short: a collection of interesting short stories and other stuff from some surprising and intelligent people. I have a short story in it. As well as stories it contains poems, pictures and things that don’t fit into any regular categories.
All royalties go to Big Brothers, Big Sisters, an organisation which provides mentors for young people in need of support and friendship. Contributors include Andy Griffiths, Micheal Panckridge, Michael Gerard Bauer, Karen Tayleur, Scot Gardner, Alicia Sometimes, Michael Pryor and Sue Lawson and many others. And it was expertly edited by my daughter, Lili Wilkinson. You can read more about it here.
My story is a sort of ancient Egyptian ghost story.
It’s a lot of fun and for a good cause. Look for it at your local bookshop or you could buy it online at the black dog books shop.
