2014 Long List

A Compassionate heart

A Cushion on the road

A Kiss by the garden gate

A New suit

A Promise

All sewn up

Always coming home

Another place

Auntie Mary

Bad hair day

Blue bahari

Bringing baby home

Broken thing

Brotherly love



Everything stops for tea

Face value

Fragments of me

Glass drunk dry

Golden Land

Good golly Miss Molly


Hear no evil, speak no evil

Home is where we are

Hula hoops were my downfall

I told him my name was Megan

In case of emergency

Indigo child


Lake isle

Letter to a wolf

Macramé for beginners

Mr war with Dr Seuss

Mt Granddad the plant


Pamela Vasquez’ eyes

Rabnatt and the lost art of conversation

Ship in a bottle

Sometime late century a statesman descends

Sometimes it all gets too much

Sweet dreams

The Amber necklace

The Boy and the light

The Butterfly collection

The Disappearance of Sailor Street

The Engine

The Firebird

The Good fight

The Hand of glory

The House they never bought

The Sweetcorn man

The Wrong turning

Water may be hot

Water’s edge

Who loves ya, baby?

Wild Flowers

You are still breathing
