Born in Edinburgh, Scotland and educated at the University of Dundee, I write in a variety of genres, from academic history to folklore, historical fiction to fantasy. I won the Dundee International Book Prize with my novel ‘Whales for the Wizard’ in 2005 and was a winner in the People’s Book Prize with ‘The Darkest Walk’ in 2011.
Happily married for 35 years, I have three grown children and live in darkest Moray in northern Scotland, close by a 13th century abbey and with buzzards and deer more common than people.
