I was born and brought up in Caithness, but since doing my first degree (in zoology) at Aberdeen University I have lived and worked in several different parts of the world. In 1983 I returned to live in the north of Scotland.
About writer's work
I have written fiction, drama and poetry but in recent years I have focused more on non-fiction and some feature journalism. My range of interests is very wide but prominent among the themes I tackle are topics relating to Highland and Scottish history, and the environment.
Current events and projects
I am willing to give talks and readings on non-fiction for the general reader, and on doing research in documents and from oral sources. Mainly for adults.
