Poet and writer of fiction, creative non-fiction and life-writing.
Based in Lanarkshire and Argyll in Scotland.
As a former creative writing teacher, I’ve always enjoyed working with people to help them express themselves and get their stories ‘out there’.
In As I Lay Me Down to Sleep, I worked with the irrepressible and fun Eileen Munro, who was burning with a story to tell about personal and social injustice.
In Second Chances: true stories of living with Addison’s disease, I worked with fifteen other ‘Addies’ to tell our stories of how this rare health condition affects our lives.
My first short story was published in a Scottish literary magazine called Cencrastus in 1999. In 2011, my first short story collection was published as an ebook by PotHole Press.
As someone who passionately believes in creative expression for all, I compiled and produced the ebook Creative Writing Prompts to Feed the Imagination. For those times when our creativity is hungry for a boost!
