I write for fun, escape and expression. I'm too old to be fashionable or to know what trends are. I luckily live north of Edinburgh, halfway up a hill, semi-retired with my wife and our cocker spaniel. The kids have flown, and I have more time now, selfish time. In a never-ending cycle of trying to finish a novel, to finish something started fifteen years ago. I'm a member of a small self-run writing group with two lovely ladies who are a great inspiration and support.
