About

Hi all!

Thanks for visiting my page.  I am a writer based in lovely, sunny (well most of the time) Broughty Ferry in Dundee. I have three children and three rescue dogs! In between chasing after everyone, I try to squeeze in precious writing time.  I’ve written a few books so far, The Fourth Bonniest Baby in Dundee (Shortlisted for the Bookbug Picture Book Prize), The Revenge of Tirpitz (Cranachan), This Bonny Baby (Kelpies),  Animal Adventure Club, The Baby Deer Rescue (Kelpies), Animal Adventure Club, The Baby Otter Rescue (Kelpies) and Greyfriars Bobby, A Puppy’s Tale (Kelpies).

Before I started writing, I was a primary school teacher. I taught for many years in Edinburgh before returning to college to study Drama and Theatre Arts.  I loved all aspects of performing (I even did a one woman show) but I specialised in Arts Journalism and I discovered that I loved writing! I wrote a few reviews/previews for The List magazine before relocating Dundee where we now live.

2020 sees the publication of my first non-fiction book, Extraordinary Women of the Bible (SPCK) and a third Animal Adventure Club story – The Baby Red Squirrel Rescue (Kelpies).

Thanks again for visiting,
