My story has found a good home!

Yay and hoozaah Bloggie friends!!

My story “One Tenth of a Second” made it to the final anthology, 100Stories for Queensland. Hoooray!!

And I’m so happy to see Theresa Milstein, Joanne Fox and Sally Quillford there too! Yay! :-)

Ahem. I know, I know, this is probably the first and only time I’ll get a story published this year but hey! It’s for my sister and her kids in Queensland!

And besides, it’s either I blog about this or you get more bad poetry! LOL!

Charlie says: I need to be quick to get to next door!


The anthology should be out on 8 March 2011!!!! All proceeds will go to the Premier Queensland Flood Relief.
