Profile I am`mature`enough to have time to write. My home looks out, over a sea bay, to a spectacular range of Wester Ross mountains. I have no excuse for not being inspired by nature I have prepared several articles on Robert Burns, who I respect, and set up a lively Burns club here in the Hielans. I meld the above, sit in my armchair in the bay window looking out at the view, then reach for my quill and a large crystal glass of golden single malt. Life`s a bitch for a writer!
