I'm a short story writer and novelist and live in my native Edinburgh.

Nothing is Heavy, my first novel was shortlisted for the Saltire Society Scottish First Book of the Year Award 2013.

My first collection of short stories, The Way Out was published by Freight Books and was long-listed for the Frank O'Connor International Short Story Award 2015, the Jerwood Fiction Uncovered Prize 2015, and the Edge Hill Short Story Prize 2016.

My second novel, Always North, is due for publication in October 2019 from Unsung Stories.

Margaret Atwood
“By now you must have guessed: I come from another planet. But I will never say to you, 'Take me to your leaders.' [...} Instead I will say, 'Take me to your trees. Take me to your breakfasts, your sunsets, your bad dreams, your shoes, your nouns. Take me to your fingers; take me to your deaths.' These are worth it. These are what I have come for.”
Margaret Atwood, Good Bones
