More About Me & Contact

I love writing and started this blog in May 2016 as a creative outlet. As well as blogging articles, I spend my time writing novels, and making up short stories and poems. My writing has featured on the Venture North and North Coast 500 travel websites, and my poem ‘Secrets of a Dog Lover’ was published by the Scottish Book Trust in their 2016 book week publication Secrets and Confessions. My writing has also been published in Best magazine and West Word. I am a regular contributor to the Thurso Community Magazine, and have appeared on BBC Radio Scotland several times.

Photography is a big part of family life here and I love to capture images of life’s little moments. You’ll find lots of photographs in this blog and I hope you enjoy looking at them – please don’t take or use them in any other way.

As well as writing and photography, my interests include walking, reading, yoga, running and pretty much anything to do with the outdoors and nature. If you’re interested in any of these things, I hope you’ll find something to appeal to you here.

When I’m not writing or running around after my family, you’ll find me on Instagram posting pictures of sunrises and cups of coffee.

If you’d like to contact me to discuss my writing or to enquire about working with me, please e-mail
