Born in Edinburgh, I grew up in the North West of England, went to the universities of Manchester and Oxford, specialising in 17th-century Spanish comic drama.
Although I started out as a translator, I escaped via a turbulent and circuitous route of journalism and educational publishing to expand my interests to include botanical history, science fiction, local history, architecture, cocktails, wine-making and avoiding DIY. I’m also a fan of Insular art and other early Medieval stuff inspired by my daughter Lauren, a History of Art graduate at Edinburgh.

Last Spring by Pamela Kelt
"The story begins quite normally. But then some very strange things start to happen. Things get even stranger and creepier and more frightening. But that was last spring.

I enjoyed this short story very much."
" I prefer the tough ones, myself, but perhaps some more clues would help! Loved the artwork on the one you mentioned. Very debonair. "
" Finally. I think I understand! Thanks. "

If you only read one non-fiction book this year, let this be the one.

I can’t fault this book. I loved the elegant journalistic prose, the atmospheric descriptions, the character studies, the insights. You are whisked back to the 1940s with such aplo

“Some search for the North Pole. Others seek to split the atom. They are both perilous journeys. When it comes to the former, it is up to the men and women involved to consider risking their lives. I throw up my hands and leave them to it. However, when it comes to the latter, these nuclear adventurers risk the future of mankind, and I, for one, fear for us all.”
