About Kevlin Henney
I'm an independent consultant, international speaker, writer and trainer. I live in Bristol and online.
My software development interests are in patterns, programming, practice and process. As well as contributing to a number of projects, I've been involved in (far too) many committees (for conferences, publications and standards, but as yet I've not been on a committee for committees).
My fiction writing tends to the short side — and occasionally to the dark side — spanning a number of genres.

“The Flash Fiction Festival 2018 was a wonderfully inclusive, supportive weekend for flash writers at all levels. Its workshops were well varied and inspirational, while the readings gave so much pleasure with the quality and range of the work. Not to be missed next year!”
—Carrie Etter, poet, flash fiction writer and Reader in Creative Writing at Bath Spa University.
“The Flash Fiction Festival 2018, under the direction of Jude Higgins, is itself a collaborative work of art. It was a deep pleasure to be part of a world where everyone was open, engaged in each other’s writing, and made more adventurous by proximity to this community. We talked, we ate, we drank, we wrote. Then we wrote about what had just happened.”
—Laurie Stone, writer, critic and teacher.
“A great weekend. A lot of serious work done, but also a lot of fun. If you write, or want to write flash, book for next year as soon as booking opens!”
—Jenny Woodhouse, writer, U3A Group Leader.
“A fabulous weekend from start to finish. Thanks so much for inviting me to book.”
—Tim Craig, writer.
Welcome to the Graveyard -- Where the worlds of the living and the dead overlap.
The sigh of troubled spirits drifts between ivy choked headstones. As the sun sets, follow the winding path between the yew trees to the place where lost souls gather, and settle in for a night of tales both disturbing and uplifting.
A boy encounters a mysterious groundskeeper; two students unearth an ancient terror; and in the wilds of Africa, a hunter stumbles into danger. In a vision of the future, a blackened sky unleashes creatures of the night. Closer to home, a message from beyond the grave gives a young man hope.
From the collective who brought you North by South West and The Dark Half of The Year comes a third anthology of 16 enthralling stories inspired by our many faceted relationship with the deceased and their place of rest.

“It was a wonderful assembly of authors and editors and ‘students’ – though the students already seemed like authors.”
“You managed to create a relaxed yet focussed ambiance so that participants could let anxieties fall away, have fun writing and immersing themselves in craft and other skills, soaking up all the varied and sparkling influences that abounded.”
“...I had previously come across the genre, viewing it more or less exclusively as something light and whimsical but I had completely under estimated its potential and the discipline involved. It was these latter two aspects that intrigued me...”
“...comments and insights from the workshops showed me how the embryonic idea I started with could be developed and given depth.”

This is a wonderful collection of stories, show-casing the vital state of flash-fiction today.
Flash Me! was about having a place to open your literary raincoat and show the world what you got. It rears its head again now in a new form. This anthology is a collision of decadence and shorter word-count fiction.
Joining us on this project is the man who first birthed Flash Me! and the minister of exposing one’s self in word form. That would be Mr Chester Pane™.
