I live in Lancashire and my stories are mostly set in the region. I am an author and also a partner in a proofreading and manuscript appraisal service. i write short stories and articles and hold PhD in Creative Writing. My first novel won the Impress Novel Prize in 2007 and was published in 2008 and I am currently writing a series of crime novels.
I'm the European editor for Noir Nation, and I would love to get some more stories from the UK for Issue 2 (Issue 1 will be available Sept 1, 2011). Looking for short stories and graphic stories (comics). Maybe you have some, and could also help spread the word? We start reading for issue 2 on Oct 1.
