Dundee Literary Festival is over for another year. I hugely enjoyed my brief event as part of ‘Exploring Dundee’s History’ participating alongside other authors published by Abertay Historical Society and Billy Kay. The event was reasonably well-attended (around fifty) but was all too brief!
I also managed to attend several other events, including a discussion of Graeme McRae Burnet’s third novel, Accident on the A35, chaired by Louise Welsh. I was gratified when the discussion veered towards the subject of Alex Trocchi as an influence. Later, I managed to get Graeme to agree to a selfie!
I am looking forward to participating in an event on Thursday 19th at 5pm in the Bonar Hall Dundee, celebrating 70 years of Abertay Historical Society publications. As an Abertay author myself – Vol 1&2 of Dundee’s Literary Lives 2003/4 (see Non-Fiction page), I will be speaking along with other AHS authors and Billy Kay.

Apologies for the lack of information on the site, which is presently under reconstruction.
I have had a website presence since 2002 in various formats however a couple of weeks ago, due to circumstances beyond my control my site disappeared.
I am working hard to restore it. Thanks for your interest.
