I'm the author of A Gentleman in Hell, a novel celebrating the life of dentist and gunfighter Doc Holliday.

I was brought up in Scotland but I currently live in Kentucky.

I love riding horses and enjoy long trail rides and beach gallops. I'm passionate about the history of the Old West.

Finding New Ways of Writing

Hello, how are you doing? I have been writing and I do have more posts about the history of Doc Holliday for you and also the Wild West. I’ve also been looking at finding new ways of writing and working on getting a draft of my latest novel completed.

A Wicked Little Town (Literature & Fiction)
1 chapters   —   updated May 13, 2015 06:37PM
Description: A poker game turns violent leaving a soldier dead. Doc Holliday leaves town fast. He moves to Dodge City, Kansas and sets up as a dentist but it's not teeth he’s fixing. With friends like Wyatt Earp and Bat Masterson, there’s more to worry about than cavities. Gamblers, outlaws and horse thieves are all out to cause trouble and if the town sheriff needs a little help you can bet Doc’s willing to ride along. Throw in a spicy, troublemaking soiled dove for good measure and you can be sure Doc’s got his hands full.
