Please join myself and fellow Linen Press writers Ali Bacon and Charlotte Fairbairn at a literary event, via zoom, on the 17th November at 7pm.
Hosted by Lynn Michell we’ll be reading from our work and talking about Scottish writing and everything that this can mean around landscape, language and life. Expect a very lively debate! . We’re calling it “Not Tartan and Square Sausages – Scottish Author Celebration”.
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.
