I'm a writer, editor and musician, living in Dunbar, Scotland

What's on the site?

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

What's new?

I'm mostly writing short stories and the occasional poem these days.

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 is due in June 2021, and currently open
for submissions.

My 12th book, and 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..

I've also edited Mary Johnston's Doric short stories pamphlet, Mysie and other stories, and Sheila Templeton's poetry collection, Clyack.
Details of these are on the Red Squirrel Press website. Red Squirrel Press is organising a zoom launch for all three titles.

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. 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.
