About

I love stories and everyone has their own tale to tell. Here’s a bit of mine.

I was born in Ireland, but grew up in Scotland, in the beautiful city of Edinburgh, where I now live again, having spent  several years in the wilds of London. I have worked for years as a teacher, but for even more years as a writer and musician.

I am so lucky to live in such an inspiring location as Scotland,

but the world is a big old place and I love travelling around it, collecting ideas and words and images.

My partner is German and there aren’t many things in life I like more than swimming in a Bavarian lake, looking out at the Alps and watching the dragonflies.

The landscapes around beautiful Berchtesgaden inspire me.

Writing is one of those things.

Living the dream…

And, of course, the next story is always the most exciting one – I am creating it now!
