What's new?

I mostly write 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 was published in 2021, with two issues
planned for 2022.

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
website.

I'm working on an exciting poetry project for 2022, but I don't want to say anything about it just yet, as it's still in the planning stage.

 

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..

2021 saw the publication of several examples of my editing work: Mary Johnston's Doric short story pamphlet, Mysie and other stories, Sheila Templeton's poetry collection, Clyack, Sally Evans' novel Wildgoose,
and the poetry pamphlet Rousseau's Moustache, by LesleyMay Miller. I also edited other works due for publication by Red Squirrel Press and Postbox Press in 2022.

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.

Since the pandemic, opportunities for readings, launches and workshops
have been limited, but 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.
