I’m just another writer new to indie publishing. Currently editing my first novel – which is very hard! Writing is very hard too but I wouldn’t be without it.

I’m a State Pensioner with a load of stuff behind me. Teacher, writer, work with mental health and addiction. And my dark places.

You’ll see from Twitter and Facebook that I still have an active interest in mental health and addiction, things I don’t approach from a ‘medical’ angle but from an exploration of those shared ‘dark places’ of the soul.

This blog will shamelessly plug my book if it ever gets there. But mainly I’ll be posting a range of subjects. My interests come and go but at the moment I’m delving into the way Scotland is represented, the myths, the stereotypes.

I’ll also do some book reviews as and when, and news about indie publishing.
