John-John published in HCE REview, Volume III, Issue I.

One of my short stories, John-John, is published in the current issue of UCD’s literary and art journal, HCE Review. The story has previously been longlisted for the Fish Publishing International SS competition and was considered for Hennessey New Irish Writing with the Irish Times. I am so delighted that John-John has found a permanent home.

The story is available to read online here: https://drive.google.com/file/d/1QFsjxmznchlV1aKLfinXsgrQ3H4xXK81/view
