For many years I wrote poetry, publishing it in newspapers, magazines and anthologies of Scottish verse. This was a sensible choice, since my work left little time and even less energy for anything longer. (I ran a recording studio, teaching students to script record and edit spoken word, sound effects and music).
For the last few years I have concentrated on novels. Time to Talk was published in October 2013, to be followed by A Serious Business early in 2014. Both are set in Edinburgh. I have just published (November 2019) a new title, The Ears of a Cat, in which I range far and wide and don’t set foot once in my native city.
I am an active member of a BPD support group. Borderline personality disorder is primarily a disorder of the emotions which puts as much strain, and sometimes more, on relatives and friends as it does on the person with the condition.
I live with my wife in the grounds of an old convent.
