Fabulous evening last night at the Cinema Museum. Huge thanks to Chris and the team for organising such a brilliant, spooky, fun event. Great to be able to come together and celebrate all the talent on show in Twisted volume 2 and Singularity50.

I just wanted to say what a huge thrill it was to be invited to the Create 50 Twisted 2 / Singularity Awards at the Cinema Museum, London where so many writers works were celebrated. It is a privilege to be recognised for something for which, certainly speaking for myself, when writing my piece, recognition was not on my mind, but was simply trying to serve the story. To then discover that other people have connected with the story and the emotional impact of what you have written is the best reward anyone can receive, to then have that elevated to recognition by your peers is exceptional. Thanks again for a marvellous night where old friends were reconnected and new ones discovered.

What a GREAT evening… watch out for the photos tomorrow.
