Welcome to my website. I am a poet and novelist from Paisley, Scotland. From 2001 to 2013 I was founder and editor of Earth Love, a small press eco-poetry magazine whose quarterly publications and anthologies raised funds for conservation. I have had poetry and short stories published in magazines and anthologies ranging from New Writing Scotland, Cutting Teeth, The Eildon Tree, Southlight, Gutter,Acumen, Poets' Republic, and the Glasgow Underground. My monologues and plays have been performed at Glasgow's West End Festival, and I have been involved with various community and spoken word events, including at the world's oldest musical hall, The Britannia Panopticon. I have one novel, Blushing is for Sinners (Clochoderick, 2019), two poetry collections, Portrait (2022), Painting San Romano (2022), and a poetry pamphlet, Wild Eye Fire Eye (2015).
