They think it will be easy.

They're wrong.

More About the Author

I have lived in different places and worked at too many occupations to mention, including stints as a nightclub doorman, bodyguard, extra, and double for various Hollywood actors. I have also spent many years as a political activist.

My abiding passion is the written word, believing wholeheartedly in the dictum that 'a man who reads lives a thousand lives before he dies'. As a writer I subscribe to the theory that before sitting down to write you must first stand up to live. In the process of doing so I have arrived at the conclusion that you don't get what you deserve in life, you get what you get. All we are able to control as a consequence is how we deal with whatever that may be.

My Edinburgh Trilogy of fiction novels - WAR, METROSEXUALS and A BEAUTIFUL DAY - explore different aspects of the Scotland's capital. A review of WAR claimed 'he creates a compelling and nightmarish landscape which makes Ian Rankin's Edinburgh look antiseptic and anodyne by comparison.'

You can read the review in full via the following link:

My memoir of the years I spent in Hollywood trying and failing to establish a career as a screenwriter - DREAMS THAT DIE - is also available, both in paperback and eBook formats. It pulls no punches in the process of providing an insight into Hollywood - the town and the industry - from the perspective of the bottom feeder. It is a Hollywood story like no other. Believe me, I still bear the scars to prove it.

My latest Kindle eBook is LAND OF OPPORTUNITY. The story follows the fortunes of a young man after he decides to leave his mundane life in Scotland for what he hopes will be excitement and adventure in California. He is soon plunged into the fast and dangerous world of drug trafficking, in the process learning that excitement and adventure comes at a high price.

You can also catch me at the Huffington Post, where I blog regularly on politics, culture, and international issues. I also write regularly on the sport of boxing and currently I am working on a memoir of my years in and around the sport.

Finally, I am a great admirer of the penetrating insight of Oscar Wilde. One quote of his I particularly like and subscribe to is, 'Every saint has a past and ever sinner has a future.'

I hope you enjoy my books as much as I enjoyed living and writing them.

A brilliantly written novel, one that truly depicts the depression, misery and deceit of the drug underworld and the housing schemes of Edinburgh. I look forward to the release of the second book.
