How The Doctor Changed My Life

The Big Finish website has posted a news story and full details of the forthcoming Doctor Who anthology, How The Doctor Changed My Life. This would be exciting enough anyway, if it weren't for the fact that I've got a story in it! I was a runner up in a competition to find new writers for Doctor Who and, along with 24 other lucky entrants, got my story into this book!

The cover picture here is by Alex Mallinson and the information below is from the Big Finish website. I can't wait for this to come out!

The schoolboy whose twin brother vanished in the night. A woman whose house teems with alien refugees. The dad who dies every evening...

All through space and time live people, ordinary people, whose lives have been turned upside down.

People who’ve lost jobs and loved ones, or seen their homes destroyed, or found themselves on whole other planets. They’ve nothing in common with one another except that their lives can never be the same.

Because they’re people who’ve met the Doctor.

Featuring 25 original stories from 25 brand-new authors – the winners of a competition to seek out bold new writing talent!
