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 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, West Word and Northwords Now.

I am a regular contributor to the Thurso Community Magazine, and have made several appearances on BBC Radio Scotland.

My first novel, Castles of Steel and Thunder, a young adult fantasy based on the folklore of Caithness, was published in November 2020. You can buy the book here, and read lots more about it on the blog.
