Does the name Mandy Huggins sound familiar? It should do - because she has won prizes in both our short story and flash contests, and we're delighted to hear that she now has a published collection of flash fiction called Brightly Coloured Horses. Here's the blurb:

Twenty-seven tales of betrayal and loss, of dreams and hopes, of lovers, liars and cheats. Stories with a strong sense of place, transporting us from the seashore to the city, from India's monsoon to the heat of Cuba, and from the supermarket aisle to a Catalonian fiesta. We meet a baby that never existed, a car called Marilyn, a one-eyed cat, and a boy whose kisses taste of dunked biscuits. These stories all have something in common; each is a glimpse of what it's like to be human. We make mistakes, we do our best, and most of the time we find hope.

We shall be picking up our own copy from Amazon. Here's the link
