It’s episode 143 with Gail Aldwin, talking about her children’s picture book Pandemonium, but also her new novel which comes out next year, as well as telling me about her long journey to publication and why she likes to write short stories alongside a novel.

I give a brief catch-up and mention the imminent release of my new album for The Wry Dogs. You can follow the band on Twitter @thewrydogs and check out the Facebook page here.

Based in Dorset, Gail writes fiction and poetry. Her short fiction collection Paisley Shirtwas longlisted in the best short story category of the Saboteur Awards 2018. Her debut novel The String Games, was published by Victorina Press and was voted a finalist in The People’s Book Prize 2020 as well as being shortlisted in the Dorchester Literary Festival writing prize 2020. For her latest project, Gail has turned her attention to writing for children, with her new picture book, Pandemonium out just in time for Christmas.
