Profile I was born in Edinburgh, Scotland, halfway through the 20th century, and was brought up just along the road in South Queensferry (the Ferry) in the shadow of the Forth Bridge. Retiring from a business career in 2007, I have devoted myself to writing. I have published two novels, a collection of short stories and a biography of my late father, all of which can be purchased here on WriteWords.
