I wrote for children for 30 years and gave talks to all ages, though I preferred working with the older primary school children. However, in the past 12 years I’ve been writing for adults and would now prefer to have adult audiences. I’m an artist, and art figures very strongly in my writing,so I’d be happy to talk about the way painting and writing interweave in my work. Having gone down the indie publishing route a couple of times, I’d also be glad to talk to aspiring writers about this.

My main characters tend to be at the point in their lives (mid to late 50s) when their parents have died and their children are independent, and they are, for the first time in decades, free to take up the challenge of making big changes in their lives again.

My latest book More Geese Than Swans (2023) is set in Largs. It takes place against a backdrop of the contemporary Scottish Art scene - its artists, their models, and the galleries in which they hang their work.
