About Me

Thanks for coming. A quick bit about me. I was born in Plymouth, England a long time ago but I’ve lived most of my life in Scotland. I’ve written stage and radio plays, songs and sketches for revues, flash fiction, short stories, novels, stories for children and books aimed at helping students to write effective academic essays and dissertations and get the most out of university and work. I’ve been a university lecturer, actor, director, TV presenter, visiting professor and artist at the University of Rhode Island, spent a few years as a Royal Literary Fund Writing Fellow in universities in Aberdeen, Dundee and St Andrews, and, more recently, held workshops in schools aimed at helping final year students with the transition to university or college. I love writing and exploring many forms and genres.

And, to keep it all tidy, I need to mention that:
