I’ve been writing in Gaelic since 2004 and am particularly interested in producing work that’s accessible to Gaelic Learners. I’m also committed to raising the profile of Gaelic writing in the wider community.

In 2017, I won a Gaelic New Writers’ Award (SBT/CnL) for short story writing and my collection of Gaelic short stories,Cuibhle an Fhortain, was published in 2019 by Luath Press. Previously, I’ve had articles, short fiction and narrative non-fiction published in  Steall and Cothrom magazines, Northwords Now/Tuath, the anthologies Nourish/Beathachadh (SBT,2017) and New Writing,vol 9(SBT,2018) and in the Gaelic podcast A’ Chrannag. I’m currently  working on a Gaelic novel for young people.

My work also includes editing and translating a bi-lingual collection of my late mother’s fascinating series of articles about her childhood on the Inner Hebridean island of Colonsay in the 1920s – Dìleab Cholbhasach/A Colonsay Legacy (Acair,2013)

I’ve given numerous talks/readings in both Gaelic and English to a wide variety of community groups and have participated in events at the Wigtown and Edinburgh book festivals.
