About

Thank you for visiting my website.  I’m an author and a lawyer, living in my home-town of Inverness, in the Scottish Highlands.  I specialise in housing and property law.

I’ve been writing novels and short stories for many years.  Much of my writing is set in the Highlands and Islands, although I’ve also written short stories set in the Antarctic and Italy.  Some years ago, I decided to try my hand at crime fiction, and in 2014, my debut novel, In the Shadow of the Hill, featuring Detective Sergeant Joe Galbraith, was published by ThunderPoint Publishing.  Book 2 in the DS Joe Galbraith series – Madness Lies – is now available.

I’ve also written a novel set in 18th century St Kilda – Lament for the Children; and a contemporary novel set in North Uist – Breathing of the Vanished.  These have not (yet) been published.

I’ve recently completed Deception, a stand-alone domestic noir thriller set in Edinburgh.
