For a limited time, my short story The Memory Bones is available to read, free, on a website called Tablo, It's a publishing site, and it's a really interesting idea, There are lots of great stories available to read, at no cost, many by well-known authors. You can also read some new writing as it takes shape, and (if you wish to log in) you can leave constructive comments on the work you've seen. My story, which was a finalist for the Carmel Bird Short Story award, is set in rural Australia. At the story's heart is the true story of the widespread murder of indigenous Australians by farmers. My own mother can recall her parents talking about one such murder close to their farm. There's a snippet of my story here on my site (click on 'Stories' above), or you can read all of The Memory Bones by clicking the button below.
