I am a the author of two novels, Chapel at the Edge of the World and The Captain’s Wife. I am currently being mentored myself through the Scottish Book Trust on my first novel for children aged 8-12, as well as being a creative writing tutor, so have a good understanding of both sides of the process. I have also published short stories and am enthusiastic about the short story as a form.

Find details of my books and writing at


  • Literary fiction
  • Children’s fiction (8-12)
  • Historical.


I can offer a total of three hours mentoring which can be divided between in person contact, email, telephone or skype/FaceTime depending on the requirements and location of the mentee.
