About me

I’m currently writing a novel set in the 1830s and 1880s in Scotland, Spain and Canada. My first novel, The Chase, was published by Bloomsbury. Set in the Perigord region of France, it had chapters set in different historical periods woven into the main narrative. I had a lot of fun with that. I run my own literary consultancy, www.fictionfire.co.uk – offering courses, workshops, critiquing and mentoring.
