Hello. I am a writer of fictions, both short and long. I live near Edinburgh, Scotland. Here you’ll find some of my work, along with reviews & criticism, and updates on the progress of my writing. Most of my reviews are of the mid-20th century experimental French fiction known as the Nouveau Roman, and of the weird/eerie. If I could successfully marry the two modes in a work of fiction, I’d be happy.
My self-published collection of short stories is available from the Kindle store. It’s only 99p. Please buy a copy if you like what you read here.
My short stories have appeared in New Writing Scotland, New Writing Dundee, Riverrun and Cutting Teeth, among others. In 2002 I was shortlisted for the Dundee Book Prize (now Dundee International Book Prize), where my work was “highly commended” by the judges, including poet Don Paterson.
I hope you enjoy what you find here.
