So yesterday went by and towards the end of it OH casually lobbed into the conversation that he ‘might be in with a chance for the James Tiptree Jr award.’
‘When did you hear that?’ I asked, surprised that he mentioned it then because he wasn’t anywhere near a computer.
‘Oh, first thing this morning,’ he announced airily.
I mean, for god’s sake! What does a spouse have to do to be kept in the loop these days?
The announcement isn’t till later in the year so I’ll keep you posted. No more now because I’ve been busy with decorating.

I started my first novel, aged 8, in a draughty vicarage, finishing it 14 years later. My first poem emerged on a Sussex beach in 1965, but I didn’t return to poetry until 2007: I’m still trying to find out why.
I have published short stories, poems and reviews and am a recognised performance poet. I’ve been married 21 years and have two children, Holly, 20 and Daniel, 17; but my husband now wants to be known as female. My struggles with this and its effects on my writing, are the springboard for short stories and a radio play.
