WRITING REVIEWS:

Falkland Island Walk
‘He has a head like a red nightmare and he doesn’t care; he’s not looking for friends.’ The descriptions and colours, the sounds and atmosphere of this piece make it hum, like the wind that ‘makes the heather buzz’. A story that is almost entirely description, with very little plot or change – but soft observational writing that makes the place seem as permanent and haunting as the wind.'
