A short story for Arboreal

Arboreal
Arboreal: a collection of words from the woods. Little Toller Books.

I’ve written a short fictional story which has been selected for inclusion in Arboreal: a collection of words from the woods to be published by Little Toller Books in October.

Bringing together the finest, and best-known, names in contemporary writing, the new anthology explores the many strands of what woodlands mean to us. A landmark publication, it will appeal widely to many readers.

I wanted to create a different slant on the brief, provided by editor Adrian Cooper, to write about a woodland that means something special to me. My story is set in the future, and looks back to the past. My contribution is titled: Don’t look back – Piles Copse, Dartmoor Forest.

More information (and a preorder form) is available on the Little Toller website
