Cherry describes it as
Lesbian leaves work, misses train, but gains something more valuable.
Cherry’s story for Stations, A Place of Departures is set in Rotherhithe and was written especially for the collection; she describes it as
motivated by a love of history, a feeling for place, and a belief that your roots can sometimes tie you down.
Her story for Lovers’ Lies, Mirror, was read at Liars’ League Blood & Thunder night in November 2009 and is a story of repressed emotion just after WWI.
Cherry’s 1992 collection Mosaic of Air is to be republished by Arachne Press in September 2013
