Last week I was delighted to hear that my short story ‘The Runaway Wife’ has been shortlisted for the ‘From the Well’ short story writing competition run by Cork County Council Arts Office. It will be published in an anthology in May. ‘The Runaway Wife’ is about a woman who leaves her abusive husband to go and live in Tuscany. I have always held the dream to do the same but my husband is far too good to leave, so I had to make it up!
And the extra good news is that in the name of research, I feel compelled to visit Tuscany to develop my novel ‘The Runaway Wife’ which has the same title and subject matter. : )
