I am very much a new writer. My first traditionally published novel, Whirligig (released in March 2020 just as the pandemic hit), was longlisted for the Crime Writers Association New Blood Dagger Award and a finalist for the Bloody Scotland McIlvanney Prize.

I wrote my first novel in 2018 – a self-published Fairy Tartan Noir released on Amazon which won the Goodreads Silver Award. I have since taken it off the platform for a slight re-write and hope to have it taken by a publisher. The second book in the Whirligig series (The Devil’s Cut) will be released 28th October 2021 by Fledgling Press.

In the interim I have written a climate change thriller – A Song of Winter – presently out with agents; and I have been given an award by Creative Scotland and the National Lottery to write a modern interpretation of Robert Louis Stevenson’s Kidnapped which I plan to have completed by the end of 2021.

Prior to writing I have had a career that encompassed aerospace engineering, live sound and music and running my own audio-visual company. In 2016 I had my first foray into publishing with 100 Favourite Ceilidh Dances published by Luath Press.
