Although traditionally we don’t celebrate Halloween in New Zealand (though try telling that to the kids), it’s hard to deny that the decorations are oh so much cooler than the ones we bring out each Christmas. So in our house we’ve decided to hang on to them a wee bit longer.
And in celebration of Halloween, I wrote a short but spooky story called ‘Bad House’, which I’ve just learned has won third place in SpecFicNZ’s Spooky Story Competition. You can read it here.
I also have a Christmas story coming out next month (a slightly spooky Christmas story at that) with Splickety Prime. But more on that later!
