It's great to be included in this new anthology from Reading the Forest on 500 years of Forest of Dean writing.

The Reading the Forest is a HLF project to record, capture, and preserve the literary heritage of the Forest of Dean - writing by people from the Forest, and by other writing about the Forest, from the medieval period right up to the present. Alongside big names such as Dennis Potter, William Gilpin, and Winifred Foley are lesser-known names such as Catherine Drew, and modern writers such as Sarah Franklin and Andrew Taylor.

It's a real privilege to be included in such a comprehensive and outstanding anthology.

The anthology is being distributed to local schools (including my old school!) to help inspire the next generation of Forest writers.
