Chameleon is a collection of twelve stories from the winner of the 2009 Mslexia International Short Story Competition, which annually attracts thousands of entries.

In the tradition of fairytales, the stories sharply observe the human condition, good and bad, villainous and heroic, with a satisfying twist in each tale. Chameleon includes tales about the vivid intensity of a child’s imagination, the confusion of adolescent love, and the darker side of human nature. Domestic familiarity is made colourful in stories both imaginative and comic. This is an endearing, emotionally wide-ranging collection.

Beda Higgins writes poetry and prose and is published in various anthologies and collections. In 2004 she received a Northern Promise Award for her first novel, and her second novel was one of five shortlisted in the National Lit. Idol Competition. In 2010 she received a Time to Write Award to complete her third novel. She works part-time as a Practice Nurse and has received two Queen’s Nursing Institute Awards to fund studies to consider writing as a therapeutic tool. She lives in Newcastle upon Tyne and is married with three children.
