Although I was born in Yorkshire and brought up in Ilkley in the beautiful Yorkshire Dales, I have always felt Scottish. My parents were both Scottish and I studied English at the University of St Andrews and afterwards taught English at several High Schools in the Edinburgh area. I have also taught English as a Foreign Language in Finland and Switzerland.
I love reading crime fiction, especially Scottish and Scandinavian, going to crime writing festivals, travelling, walking in the mountains and being with my friends and family.
Sewing the Shadows Together
Set in Edinburgh, the Outer Hebrides and South Africa, Sewing the Shadows Together is a psychologoical murder mystery that keeps the reader guessing to the end. Part family drama, part romance, and filled with characters who could easily be friends, family or people we work with, it asks the question: Do we ever really know those closest to us?
