I am a poet and storyteller living in the Isle of Mull. I'm a member of the ecumenical Iona Community, and a former Warden of the Abbey in Iona. Before that I worked for many years as an editor of publications about the World Church. I'm also on the directory of the Scottish Storytelling Network.
A Director and volunteer with the Ross of Mull Historical Centre, I enjoy telling lively local history stories and legends of the islands. As a peace monitor with the Ecumenical Accompaniment Programme in Palestine and Israel on two placements, I was inspired to write poems and a blog - and to continue speaking about the lives of ordinary (and extraordinary) people living under Occupation in the villages of the West Bank.
Publications (with Wild Goose) include Out of Iona, Between High and Low Water, A Pocket Full of Crumbs, and Walking Through Advent. I also self publish poetry pamphlets - the Gatherings series - as Oystercatcher/Gillebrighde. (Photo credit: Meg Pickard)
