I write thriller, historical and romance books, also non-fiction about moving to France where I am an independent estate agent. I am a co-presenter on Talking Books Ex-PatRadio.com on Thursdays from 10.30-11.30 GMT.
I was born in the Highlands of Scotland where I went to school. I moved to Aberdeen to study law. After completing my law degree, I obtained a Diploma in Legal Practise and completed a two year trainee-ship with an Aberdeen-shire law practise. Once a fully qualified lawyer I moved to Glasgow then Edinburgh as I wanted to specialise in court work. After twelve years as a court practitioner specialising latterly in criminal defence I moved to South West France where I set up my own estate agency firm.
I have lived in South West

FETE DES VOISINS 17TH MAY 2017

I was thrilled to be invited to the British Ambassador’s residence in Paris as part of the launch of Les Fete des Voisins particularly as it was a short piece of writing which led to my invitation.
“I think one of my fondest memories of France is of tearing around L’etoile in Paris with a group of French people, of a similar age to me, who for some reason adopted me when I moved to Paris for an... Read more of this blog post »

Love like you'll never be hurt,
Sing like there's nobody listening,
And live like it's heaven on earth.”
