Welcome to my wee blog. This is all very new to me but as my mother used to say:

Finished at Last!

Beyond Gartsherrie Cover

At last, it’s finished BEYOND GARTSHERRIE. Thankfully feedback so far has been positive which comes as a great relief.
Trust me, writing a follow-up book is a great deal harder than just taking family stories and my imagination and letting it rip as I did with THE LAWS OF GARTSHERRIE.


This time I found I had to tread the difficult pathway of trying to make the book stand alone and also making it accessible to the readers of THE LAWS OF GARTSHERRIE who had already engaged with the core characters.

In April I hope to give a little presentation about the new book in Coatbridge or Airdrie, I’ll also explain how a perfectly sensible wee woman took up writing in her 60’s instead of going to rock concerts and drinking Prosecco. Not that there is anything wrong with a glass of Prosecco and I still have my Queen DVD’s.
