Before graduating in English Literature at the University of Edinburgh in 1995, I worked as a master joiner/carpenter. Following graduation from university, I studied for a post-graduate diploma in Community Education and worked as a literacy tutor in Community Learning and Development. I have gained education awards and published an academic paper on the use of Scots language in family literacy work. I have produced teachers' notes for the Scottish Book Trust.
My first work of fiction, Justified Sinner, was completed in 2016. Since then I have published three more novels in the JP Associate series.
Dear Readers, please accept my apologies regarding the availability of my books but my account problem with Amazon is as yet unresolved.
I have been receiving many enquiries as to where my books are available to purchase but unfortunately they are not yet for sale until my publishing problem is resolved.
The good news is that this hiccup has not in any way stemmed the flow of my writing and I am busy writing the follow up to my last novel and have more ideas in the pipeline, including a possible return to JP Associates.
I can only hope that your patience will be rewarded by the coming novels.
Wishing you all a great Christmas and a fab New Year!
This morning, the 17th of September and on a glorious sunny day here in Leith, I have published The Damask Weaver on Amazon, in both Kindle and Paperback versions.
Now it may take up to two days for the Kindle version to appear for sale and up to three days for the paperback. I’ll let you know if and when I see it for sale, but then you might see it first.
Thank you again for biding your time with me. I hope you enjoy reading this book as much as I enjoyed writing it.
To all you virtuous readers out there I wish to thank you for your patience. The Damask Weaver has gone from one forensic lab to another, been dissected, disarmed, studied and given umpteen facelifts and tucks but he is now about ready for the road.
Yes, he’s missed the Spring and Summer but Autumn was always his favourite season, particularly September when that cooling air cools our ardour and gives us time to take breath.
And as you do, watch out for the Weaver, you’ll recognise him from the cut of his cloth.
