Niamh Murphy has a new short story out: Delicious, available from Torquere Press or here on Amazon.

Charlotte is invited to a boisterous New Year’s party and struggles to get close to the woman she craves, her gorgeous cookery teacher, Nadia. She soon realizes she is pining for someone way out of her league and resolves to leave the party and try to overcome her obsession. But Nadia is not the type to let Charlotte go that easily.

admin-ajaxOver at Women and Words, Rachel Dax, author of The Legend of Pope Joan, is guest blogger this week. Read how she goes about historical research, how she gets her inspiration, and how she brings imagined worlds alive.

Charleston-Bulletin-001Meanwhile, recently discovered, previously unseen manuscripts written byVirginia Woolf for her young nephews reveal an “affectionate, mischievous” side to the author of Orlando and Mrs Dalloway.

The Charleston Bulletin was a family newspaper founded and illustrated by Woolf’s nephew, for which Woolf wrote and dictated a series of supplements. It is “very likely” to be the last unpublished work from Woolf, and the British Library, which acquired the manuscripts in 2003, hope its release will give the public the opportunity to see how “very light-hearted” Woolf could be. More details can be found in this article from The Guardian newspaper.
