In this month's short story, rebellious Maddy's reunion with her much older and more conventional sister goes disastrously wrong.

About the writer

Belgium based writer Sheila Kinsella’s short stories draw inspiration from her Irish upbringing. An avid watcher of people’s behaviour, and blessed with abundant natural curiosity, Sheila lures the reader into a shrewdly observed world via imagery. 

Sheila graduated with an MA in Creative Writing (Distance Learning) from Lancaster University in the United Kingdom in 2017. Her stories have since been published in The Galway ReviewThe Blue Nib and Severine Literary Journal amongst others. 

The producer was Tabitha Potts.
