I'm a Scottish person, married, with one daughter and currently living in Dunblane, Scotland.

I've written seven novels, so far: mostly crime fiction. The DI Adam Stark series has four books out now and a fifth under construction. There are a couple of standalone crime novels and a post-apocalyptic, Scottish horror. They should all be listed below. My main literary influences are Irvine Welsh, Chris Brookmyre and Stephen King. As a result, my stuff is often dark, violent, and peppered with profanity, but there's a lot of humour too.

More Stark, or should that be Starker?

The third DI Adam Stark novel was published in July 2015 and, almost as soon as I’d finished it, I was confident I had the plot and theme of the follow-up, Stark Reminders, pretty clear in my mind. I started writing it in about September 2015 and, at first, it all went fairly well. I wasn’t writing prolifically, but it was steady enough by my standards. Then, in summer 2016, I hit a bit of a brick Read more of this blog post »
