I am the author of the historical novel, Blackbird’s Song, which is set in the first Russian Revolution of 1905. I work as a University Teacher at the Centre for History at the University of the Highlands and Islands, specialising in women’s history, the history of the Russian Revolution (1870s – 1930s), and European history (1900-1945).
I have participated in a literary festival, been interviewed on South African radio, and appeared on a BBC documentary: Lucy Worsley’s Royal History’s Biggest Fibs.
I am a skilled teacher and facilitator who is comfortable working with all ages from primary school upwards and in all settings, from small group workshops to conference panels to presenting to large audiences. I would be delighted to offer creative writing workshops and could talk about writing historical fiction, my novel writing/independent publishing experience, and how to edit one’s own work.
