Last weekend, there was an extract from the opening chapter of my novel Almost Then published in the Sunday Post newspaper.
Two of the central characters of the novel are twins, sister and brother Rathlin and Breacán. In the article, alongside the book extract, there’s an interview with me about the extent to which twins have shaped my life personally too. The photoshoot with myself, my daughter and her newborn twin daughters is just one such connection. There are several more!
Here’s the online article, and the paper article is below.
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.
