"Strong writing, a distinctive voice and original concepts" - Kelpies Prize judges

About me

I was weaned on avocados and stories, and grew up all over the world.


I now live in the Scottish Borders with my husband, sons and cats.


I have two jobs: apart from my writing, I support study-abroad students in universities across Scotland.
