I'm a novelist, playwright and short story writer: a 'hybrid' writer, both traditionally and independently published - and very happy with both arrangements.
I have more than 100 plays for radio, television and the stage to my name and still write the occasional stage play. I love the whole process of rehearsal and production.
But I love writing novels even more.
I live and work in rural Scotland, in a 200 year old stone-built cottage, which also happens to be a listed building. I write almost every day, but also spend part of each week dealing in antique textiles (which often find their way into my fiction!) I'm married to an artist and our grown up son designs video games and apps for a living - we're quite a creative family.
It would be nice to have 25 plus hours in a day, but I'll make do with what I've got. And I'm very happy indeed to talk about all aspects of my writing, from embroidery to Scottish history and historical research, from Ice Hockey to the idea of the 'grown up love story'. I'm also delighted to read at events of all kinds.
