I received some excellent news today.

My Flash Fiction piece, Moonshine Road, has been accepted for publication by Crab Fat Literary Magazine.

The story goes back to my past – there are some elements of truth and some of fiction. This made it easier for me to write as I still have vivid memories of Moonshine Bridge and Moonshine Road. As kids we knew the area inside out.

My friend Sue and I spent hours and hours, especially as young teenagers, exploring the river, the bridge, and the ruins and wild gardens of a dwelling that had been derelict for years. We’d walk across the river to the ruins of McCurdy’s Castle and swim at Whakamoonie. All amazing memories.

So… writing about the area was easier – my memories are still vivid.

Moonshine Road, the story, is about something different. And it’s set a few years later.  But you’ll have to read it to find out what it is.

I’ll post something here when it’s published.
