Making Monsters Anthology!

Very pleased to be part of the Making Monsters anthology, published by The Future Fire, and alongside a wonderful list of talent. Lots of new names (to me anyway) here, as well – so some fantastic things to check out!

The anthology pulls together modern retellings or re-imaginings of classic myths, and I’ve written a contemporary and (sub)urban take on one of my favourite tales, the Hades/Persephone love story. The anthology is edited by Emma Bridges and Djibril al-Ayed, you can get your mitts on the myths this September!
