Hi there. My name used to be Gary: I'm Carrie now. I'm a freelance journalist, columnist, author, copywriter, scriptwriter and radio talking head, and I write features, news stories and tutorials about technology, the Internet and pop culture for lots of magazines and websites.

My debut novel Coffin Dodgers hit the Kindle in June 2011, and I've written lots of non-fiction books too.

This is what conversion therapy is


On a dull autumn day in 1964, two NHS doctors strapped a 17-year-old boy into a wooden chair in a dark, windowless room and covered him in electrodes. During hours of so-called therapy, they repeatedly electrocuted him while showing him images of women’s clothing.



That’s the start of a BBC profile of Carolyn Mercer, a trans woman.


At work, Carolyn bound her developing breasts to hide the effec...

Becoming Johnny Vegas by Johnny  Vegas
Rate this book
Clear rating
A very unusual memoir: where many autobiographies tend to be fairly tedious lists of career highs and scores to settle, this is a more honest and often uncomfortable affair. It's let down by some really bad typography, but it's a fascinating read.

Not quite as scary as I'd been led to believe, but this is a compelling story that might be about the supernatural, might be about mental illness or might be about both.

Fascinating, funny and like any autobiography, a little bit whiny.

Every Night I Dream of Hell by Malcolm Mackay
Rate this book

I'm in awe of Malcolm Mackay: the huge cast of characters, the claustrophobic atmosphere, the way he makes his characters likeable enough to be human but not likeable enough to actually like. It's yet another superb Glasgow gangster story.

It's always fun to read an author having fun with his or her creations, and Rankin does just that in this short story collection. It's a fun read and whets the appetite for the imminent new Rebus novel.

I enjoyed every page of this. It's a fast-paced kinetic thriller based around a winning idea: why would anybody escape prison the day before they were due to be released?
