Friends, I've been nationalised.
Yes, that’s right – I’ve been awarded a grant from the Arts Council to work on my next book! Many thanks to ACE's wonderful Developing your Creative Practice scheme.
I don’t really like to jinx works in progress by discussing them. What I will say that the very-much-provisional title for the project I’m very excited about starting work on is Victim Country and that I envision it being really quite relentlessly northern both in theme and setting.
