About

Thank you for visiting my website.  I’m an author and a lawyer, living in my hometown 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 two in the DS Joe Galbraith series – Madness Lies – will be published in October 2017.

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 a standalone domestic noir thriller set in Edinburgh.
