Sceptre Loves

My short story, ‘Holdfast’, has been selected as a runner-up in the Sceptre Loves Short Story Competition.  So pleased. I’ve grown very fond of this story, which has shapeshifted a mighty lot since I first sketched it out several years ago, and was also the starting point for my current novel-in-progress.

Sceptre ran this competition to celebrate the publication of How Much the Heart Can Hold: an anthology of short stories exploring all shapes and temperatures of love, from the platonic to the passionate to the lasting.

The winning story by Phoebe Roy will appear in the paperback anthology, to be launched in August. Commissioned writers include the wonderful Donal Ryan, Bernadine Evaristo and Carys Bray.
