Hi, I’m Mac Logan. Thanks for your interest.
I have been everything from a shepherd on a rugged Scottish Island to CEO of a high tech company. As a 'Son of the Manse' I had a Christian upbringing with a father who was broad-minded and tolerant of other faiths.
As a board level executive I encountered corruption, the basis of much of my writing.
CORRUPTION, CRIME & ESTABLISHMENT MISCHIEF
Short of spending a lifetime in jail, a vengeance trail of murder and mayhem has few acceptable alternatives. Writing is a safe substitute.
Sad to say, the pursuit of evil people may end in tragedy for both sides of an investigation. Tears sometimes trickle down my cheeks, as I write. My world as a writer is real to me.
Crime fiction provides a means of pursuing nasty people with satisfying, imaginative robustness. My thrillers offer a sense of recourse against the corrupt people and cadres who screw us and steal our money.
Even though bad people hurt me in the past, I wish them no physical harm.
At one level I’m grateful to such deceivers for providing, as they do, the basis of The Angels’ Share series. It’s good to have a solid foundation for fiction: rooted in grievance and amplified by a surging imagination.
I love family, cooking, good company, banter, sport, fun, and an occasional drop of ‘The Cratur’.
I live in the beautiful East Neuk of Fife, Scotland.
PROSE, POETRY & ALL THAT
Writing is part of me. It took me many years to admit I’m a poet. Could it be a man thing? My efforts started in childhood, ebbing and flowing to the present day.
I’ve written over 150 blogs … can I be that old?
ARTICLES AND STUFF
With many articles published, often on business and the human side of work, I changed direction a few years back. Tired of the dry-stuff, my muse hauled me into writing fiction, non-fiction and poetry.
As an author who aims to entertain, I’m eager for feedback. Your views on any aspect of my work are important to me. Please do get in touch.
I’m a Member of the *Society of Authors* and the *Crime Writers Association*.
