The 1st of April might be April Fools Day (traditionally known as Gowk Day in Scotland) but after all the frivolities of the pre-midday pranks why not grab a chair and a glass and join me to celebrate the publication day of Almost Then.
I can’t promise fools errand gowk (cuckoo) hunting in costume, but I can promise plenty of chat about writing, creativity and some readings from the novel.
Come along and just listen, or join in the Q & A.
Hosted by Linen Press publisher Lynn Michell, it’s on the 1st at 7.30pm.
The event is on zoom and tickets are available (for free of course!) via this link.
I’m a novelist and 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. 'Almost Then', my second novel, was published by Linen Press in April 2021.
I write, produce and direct documentary films and won Royal Television Society Scotland awards in 2015 with 'Jock Stein' and for 'Jim Baxter' in 2016. 'Jimmy Johnstone' was nominated for a bronze Torc for Excellence in 2017. My feature length documentary film 'Tommy Burns won a Royal Television Society award in 2019 and 'The Women Who Built Glasgow City' won the same award in 2021.
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.
