We enjoyed producing our previous collections of short stories so much that we felt we just had to have another go. The Midnight Press & Other Oxford Stories was published this year (2013).
My story is ‘The Crew’. It is set in and around Henley on Thames. Henley is particularly associated with rowing and Henley Royal Regatta, which happens each July.
Everyone in my family (except me) has rowed at school, or university, and so it seemed apt that in the end I would write a story about this amazingly colourful and extraordinary event.
