Short story accepted for publication in new Anthology

One of my short stories, "The Thing about Jonas" has been accepted for inclusion in an Anthology being created by the Oslo Writers League.

The League comprises a great many expats, and the Anthology highlights the eclectic mix of talent and interest from the various members.

My own story is a coming of age tale about a young man who learns how to stand up for himself, and that ultimately being true to your nature is better than allowing others to dictate who you can be.

The book will be available on 20 May 2014 and will be launched at a special event in Oslo.

Here is a snippet from the story:
Detective Jonas Lyle was probably the least fit officer on the force. He was not quick on his feet, and was certainly not able to run down a perp high on speed or adrenalin. However, he was good at his job, and his record for closing cases was to be envied. He was quick to smile, and slow to anger. He did not hold grudges and was always willing to help a friend or colleague. Even if it meant humping moving boxes on a Sunday.
