What's on the site?

The site contains links to my books, music, writing news, biography and contact information.

What's new?

I'm delighted to announce that Red Squirrel Press will launch Swept Together; new and selected poems,
on Saturday 23rd July (2pm) 2022 at the Scottish Poetry Library, for my 80th birthday. The event is free,
but booking is essential through Eventbrite, or the Scottish Poetry Library website, in order to manage the numbers.
It's my 10th book of poems, and my 13th book overall.

Here's a preview of the cover, designed by Gerry Cambridge.

I'm happy to be editor of Postbox: Scotland's international short story magazine from Postbox Press, the literary fiction imprint
of Red Squirrel Press. The first two issues were published in 2019, the third in Spring 2020, and the fourth in November 2020.
Obviously, the effects of the coronavirus meant the launch of Issue 4 was by Zoom. Issue 5 was published in 2021, with two issues
planned for 2022.

My 3rd collection of short stories, Long Shorts, is published by Postbox Press and is available from the Red Squirrel Press


Long Shorts cover

It contains mainly longer short stories, along with some shorter ones for variety. The subjects, treatments and settings vary widely,
but they are still all about people and situations, subjects I never get tired of..

My previous short story collection, Word Play, is now sold out and unavailable from Red Squirrel Press, but I have a few copies
left at home. They're available for £8.99, signed if you like. If you are interested, please email me

My first book came out in 1996, so that means I've had 12 books published in the last 25 years.
12 book covers

I post regularly on Facebook under my own name.

My publications are stocked by Dunbar Craft Studio for local purchasers,
and available post-free from Red Squirrel Press.
