I’m a writer from Glasgow and I also work as a family history researcher and creative writing tutor. Before focussing on my writing career, I worked for over 30 years as a project worker and tutor with disability and mental health organisations.
I have a New Writers Award for fiction (2019) from Scottish Book Trust and an MLitt (Distinction) in Creative Writing from the University of Glasgow (2018). Hear No Evil, my debut novel, is a historical crime story set in Glasgow and Edinburgh in 1817 and is due to be published in February 2022.
My short stories, poetry and flash fiction have been published in anthologies and journals e.g., New Writing Scotland, 50GS, Flashback Fiction, Gilded Dirt & From Glasgow to Saturn. As part of my MLitt programme, I set up an archive and social media project called Back Copy: Glasgow. For examples of my writing, please have a look at my website.
I’m happy to discuss any aspect of my work, take part in discussions and create and lead workshops tailored to specific audiences.
