Reading at Short Fuse – True Romance

I will be reading at Short Fuse again on 16th February. This is my 3rd time reading at the event and I’m glad to be invited back. The night is themed around True Romance, and I will be reading a new short story ‘At the heart of the maze i will find’. More details below:

February 16th at The Y Theatre
Short Fuse presents: TRUE ROMANCE
Love stories for St. Valentines

Greetings card schmaltz be damned; treat your loved one to an evening of passionate readings. And for anyone disillusioned with the whole hearts and flowers myth, expect company in your misery with tales of unrequited love, paranoia and hearts smashed into smithereens! But the main event will cheer the most cynical of souls…

Headliner Paul Burston reads an extract from his critically acclaimed comic novel, The Gay Divorcee. Find out more about Paul’s work at:
