I am a writer, journalist and tutor based in Scotland, though for the last few years I’ve been chiefly a carer.
I’ve written a novel called The Ghost Marriage, which is set in 19th Century Shanghai.
I also write short stories and some have been published in Gutter, Fractured West, the anthologies A Thousand Cranes (Cargo Press) and National Flash Fiction Day, Enchanted Conversation, Pank, Luna Station Quarterly, Algebra and Granta, who introduced me as one of “the most exciting emerging talents in the world” (no, really, they did, I think they were drunk). I like performing my work, especially if people clap afterwards.
I have considerable experience writing for many different newspapers and magazines, mostly on arts-related subjects (I used to be TV critic for The Scotsman), and regularly appear on BBC radio. I have also taught adult education classes at both Glasgow and Strathclyde Universities and further education courses at West College Scotland.
I live with one adult, one child and one dog. I like to eat cheese triangles, I love books and libraries more than anything else and I promise that I don’t usually begin every sentence with ‘I’.
I am represented by Louise Lamont at LBA Books.
