Jennifer receiving award from Cork MayorI also write short stories. In May 2012, my short story “Leaving the Cold Behind” was shortlisted in the Cork County Council “From the Well” competition and was published in the resulting anthology. Here I am at the launch of this anthology in 2012 with the deputy Lord Mayor of Cork.

I have been shortlisted for the Fish Publishing “Flash Fiction” competition for the past three years for the following flash fiction pieces:

2012 – “Betrayal”
2013 – “Express”
2014 – “Betty”


I was delighted to contribute a short story to this book in aid of Barnardos, especially at Christmas – a time for children. This is a true story – about the best present I ever got – a baby brother!
