Short-Listed for Cinnamon Press Debut Novel Competition 2014

I’m pleased to say that my first novel One Hundredth has made the final six.

Billy Elliot meets Cool Running’s.

One Hundredth is the story of MICHEAL MILLER, a 16 year old living in poverty on a Manchester housing estate. It follows his journey from deprivation to finally competing in the most prestigious event in men’s downhill skiing. Michael’s family history is another strand of the story told through his Great, Great, Grandfather. Born into slavery, but he escapes his shackles to a better life, which runs parallel to Michael’s journey.

Good Luck to the other five authors who are short-listed!!!


I have another ‘Moral Maze’ question for your perusal.

If you were paying your bill in a restaurant and noticed they had missed off a meal, a drink or a bottle of wine, what would you do?

A) Tell them? (And feel fab but £20 lighter) or,

B ) Pay and run like hell? (And think, ‘it’s their fault, they can afford it anyway’)
