‘In the Kitchen’, a diverse anthology of stories with a diversity of authors launches today. Edited by culinary genius and author, Susmita Bhattacharya, and Farhana Shaikh of Dahlia Publishing, you can expect it to whet your appetite for all kinds of delicacies. Except for my story, ‘A Bird on the Wing’, set in a dismal Glasgow of the sixties. Betrayal, grief, vengeance – now they’re the things I’m more comfortable with. See ‘Short stories’ page on how to buy.
