My short stories and poems have been published in national magazines including Stand, Gutter, New Writing Scotland, Northwords Now, The Interpreter's House and Causeway/Cabhsair.
I recently completed my first novel, Quines at Sea; you can read the first chapter online at Northwords Now.
I have been selected by the Scottish Book Trust for the 2018 Robert Louis Stevenson Fellowship to work on a new novel inspired by the life and career of Scottish fashion designer Bill Gibb.
Much of my work features an accessible use of the Doric dialect, also known as Northeast Scots. To hear what Doric sounds like, listen to the following recordings of some of my more strongly Doric work:
