Fascinated by Scotland’s turbulent history, and in particular the 16th century, I’ve just finished my first novel which was the Historical Fiction Winner in the 2011 Harper Collins / Alan Titchmarsh People’s Novelist Competition. Published on 22nd November 2012 by Capercaillie Books, it is available via any bookshop and online stores.
An award winning short story writer, I live with my husband in the Scottish Borders and I will be working on the third book in the Munro series during my Hawthornden Fellowship in February / March 2016.
