Rugadh mi ann an Siorrachd Lannraig a Tuath ann an 1972. Tha cuid dhe na dàin agam air nochdadh anns na h-irisean Poetry Scotland, Irish Pages, Northwords Now, An Guth, Steall, agus Gutter, a bharrachd air na duanairean New Writing Scotland, The Harbour, agus Windows on Burns Night 2012. Fhuair mi àite mar Bhàrd air Muinntireas aig Fèis StAnza 2018, le taic bho Urras Edwin Morgan. Bidh mi cuideachd ri rosg. Ann an 2015 chaidh a' chiad nobhail ghoirid agam 'Glainne' fhoillseachadh le Sandstone Press. Agus chaidh a' chiad nobhail agam 'Cailèideascop' fhoillseachadh le Luath Press ann an 2017.

I was born in North Lanarkshire in 1972. Some of my poems have appeared in the periodicals Poetry Scotland, Irish Pages, Northwords Now, An Guth, Steall and Gutter, as well as the collections New Writing Scotland, The Harbour, and Windows on Burns Night 2012. I was the poet in residence at the StAnza Poetry Festival 2018, with support from The Edwin Morgan Trust. I also write prose. In 2015 my first short novel Glainne was published by Sandstone Press. And my first novel Cailèideascop was published by Luath Press in 2017, both with support from the Gaelic Books Council.
