I compiled, edited and contributed to A Blended Bouquet. The anthology contains a diverse selection of work by some of the most talented writers I've come across. Collectively, the group is known as Writers Inc. I've been its chair (chairperson, that is, not - as one of my friends suggested - the thing they sit on at meetings) for three years.

A Blended Bouquet showcases some of the finest new writing to emerge from the rainy west coast of Scotland. Poetry, short fiction and non-fiction are all p

A Blended Bouquet contains poetry and prose from thirteen of Scotland's most innovative writers. From the beat poetry of James Pettigrew to the Scots stylings of Robert Hume, it is clear that the spirit of Robert Burns is alive, well and infusing members of Writers Inc with inspiration.

I enjoyed this collection very much. Thirteen Scottish writers explore the timeless themes of love, despair and zombie apocalypse while staying true to Scottish history. These pieces, though diverse in topic, describe the human experience and what it means to be an artist in Scotland. A great read for anyone wanting something new and original.

I love A Blended Bouquet. It's a wonderful collection of poetry and short stories that takes you into the heart and soul of Scotland. It contains everything from love, death and heartache to the paranormal. One of my absolute favorites was Revelation Was Wrong by Mark Rice.

Born in Glasgow, Scotland. Grew up in the new town of East Kilbride. Began scribbling stories at the age of five. At ten, discovered heavy metal and Douglas Adams. Never looked back. Rumours of a deal with the Devil at a Scottish crossroads may have been exaggerated. Then again, Robert Burns saw Satan in Scotland's Old Alloway Kirk...
