I work mostly in Gaelic but am happy to be included in English language or bilingual events. As well as being a published writer of fiction, notably historical fiction and fictional political drama, I am a writer and storyteller who enjoys working with Gaelic Scotland's traditional heroic tales and relating language to environment, nature and place.
