I’m a novelist, a television producer and executive producer, and an award-winning documentary filmmaker.

My debut novel, The Birds That Never Flew, was shortlisted for the Dundee International Book Prize and longlisted for the Polari First Book Prize. My second novel, Almost Then will be published by Linen Press in early 2021. My third is underway.

I write, produce and direct documentary films and won Royal Television Society Scotland awards in 2015 with Jock Stein, for Jim Baxter in 2016 and for Tommy Burns in 2019.

I made two children who are now making children too. That’s the biggest achievement of all. I live in Glasgow, Scotland and Rathlin Island, Ireland.
