Lin Sagovsky brings the characters in my story to vivid life in the Liars’ League “Justice & Mercy” event at The Phoenix, Cavendish Square in London’s West End (8 March 2016).

This is me announcing the results of the 2012 Willesden Herald short story competition. Near the end, Charles Lambert says a few words too. And the remarkable Virginia Gilbert, right at the end. Roddy Doyle was the judge that year. Introduced by Sam Taradash.

Maggie Gee comments on the short-listed stories and announces the results of the Willesden Herald short story competition 2011.

This is Mary O’Shea accepting first prize in the Willesden Herald short story competition 2011. I put in an appearance, just about – if you don’t blink.
