The blurb –

‘Who can you trust, if you can’t trust yourself?

Alice Hunter, grieving and troubles after a breakdown, stumbles on the body of her friend and trustee, Harry Rook. The police determine he has been ritually murdered and suspicion falls on the vulnerable Alice, who inherited the place known locally as The Witch House from her grandmother, late High Priestess of the local coven. When the investigations turn up more evidence and it all seems to point to Alice, even she begins to doubt herself. Can she find the courage to confront the secrets and lies at the heart of her family and community to uncover the truth, prove her sanity, and clear herself of murder?’

Me Too : Short Stories

You can read more about it here on the anthology website

It can be found on Amazon UK and Amazon US in ebook and paperback formats.

It will be my very first published short story. I had a story shortlisted for the Asham Award in 2008, which encouraged me to take writing more seriously.. A couple more have been shortlisted – but this is my first accepted for publication. I am really thrilled, because I have long wanted to write about the Liverpool I knew. Even though the story is very much fiction, it does – I hope – evoke something of the people and the place I loved.
