I’m absolutely thrilled to be able to say my novel Green Ink was shortlisted for this year’s Big Issue Crime Writing Contest!
From hundreds of entries, Green Ink was one of six shortlisted, though sadly not the winner. That honour goes to Louise Sharland with her novel Vigil, which I will very much be looking forward to reading when it’s published!
My own entry, Green Ink, is a serial killer story set in Victorian Glasgow, taking the reader through the slums and shebeens of the east end to the smoke-blackened Gothic glory of the city’s heart. A killer returns home after years abroad to find his past lurking around every dark corner.
