I am a writer based in Aberdeen, Scotland. Much of my work is inspired by the folk, language and landscape of the Northeast of Scotland, with my prose and drama often incorporating Northeast Scots (Doric). Many of my stories and poems have been published nationally, and I've also had theatre work staged in Aberdeen.

I hold a PhD in Creative Writing from the University of Aberdeen and am an Honorary Fellow of the university's WORD Centre for Creative Writing. I have experience teaching within academic and community settings and I've also worked on various creative projects, both locally and internationally. I can be booked for events and workshops through Scottish Book Trust's Live Literature programme, or contacted directly.

I am represented by Jenny Brown.
