My Mother & The Medium wins Short Story Competition

My short story, My Mother & The Medium, has won the Christmas ghost story competition in The News (local Portsmouth Newspaper).

It was the story which stopped editor Mark Waldron in his tracks and sent a tingle down his spine..” they said.

The short story originally appeared as part of David E. Gates’ second anthology of short-stories, poetry and articles in Unzipped: The Mind of a Madman which is available from Smashwords and Amazon and all good online bookstores.
