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

"You might as well be oot the world as oot the fashion" - so here goes...

Escape From Gartsherrie is almost complete.

The story starts in 1917 with two of the characters from The Laws of Gartsherrie, Sam and Maria, leaving Scotland to start a new life. I’ll be able to give a further update on publication in a few weeks time.

I’d like to thank the many folks with Gartsherrie or with Coatbridge connections who've contacted me over the years to share memories. I so appreciate your thoughts and together let’s ensure the people of the industrial villages in Lanarkshire, like Gartsherrie and Glenboig, are not forgotten by history. Let their voices be heard down the years.
