Very excited to say that a new story of mine, ‘Bees/Lake’ is now available to read in Issue 7 (the ‘Kids’ issue) of literary ejournal The South Circular, a quarterly literary ejournal. It costs €3 and you can buy it online here. Here’s how it starts…
Twigs snap, trees grab, leaves underfoot slip and give. Fuck fuck fuck, goes Josh, in time to his breathing. Says it or thinks it, who knows.
Josh is eleven years old, running like hell through the exploded maze of the woods. His lungs heave fit to burst, but his mouth’s clamped tight shut, eyes strained to slits, all to avoid the thin whipping branches of the trees and saplings and bramble hogs he’s barely dodging. And the bees.
