Having lived in Scotland all my life and travelled to all parts of this wonderfully scenic country with its very proud history, I have taken the opportunity to write fiction stories based on my experiences. I hope they will stir the reader’s imagination with warmth, humour, and pathos.
The novels and stories include contemporary issues, nostalgia, folklore, mysticism and historical fiction around momentous events in Scotland’s history.
Some of my songs have played live on radio and TV. I would now like to hear from interested musicians, record companies and other interested parties who see possibilities for my music – for samples see MUSIC
