Bidh mi a' sgrìobhadh rosg agus dràma ann an Gàidhlig agus Beurla. Chaidh na nobhailean agus sgeulachdan goirid agam ainmeachadh airson duaisean Saltire agus Dhòmhnaill Meek agus chaidh m' obair a riochdachadh le Theatar Nàiseanta na h-Alba agus a chraoladh leis a' BhBC. Tha mi a' sireadh chothroman coinneachadh ri luchd-ionnsachaidh na Gàidhlig gu sònraichte, agus a bhith a' brosnachadh luchd na Gàidhlig gu sgrìobhadh gus an innis iad na sgeulachdan aca fhèin.

I write prose fiction and drama in both Gaelic and English. My novels and short stories have been shortlisted for Saltire Society and Donald Meek awards and other work has been produced by the National Theatre of Scotland and broadcast on the BBC. I particularly welcome the opportunity to meet Gaelic learners and to encourage Gaelic speakers to put pen to paper and tell their own stories.
