I am the author of a series of historical crime novels set in late-17th century Scotland, featuring investigative advocate John MacKenzie and his side-kick Davie Scougall. The fourth book in the series The Unnatural Death of a Jacobite was published by Luath Press in 2019 and the fifth, A Killing in Van Diemen’s Land, will be published by Luath in 2020. I am also the author of The Price of Scotland, a prize-wining history of Scotland’s attempt to establish a colony at Darien in Central America in the late 17th century.
I can give readings and talks about my series of late-17th century crime novels or my history of the Darien Disaster.
