About

I’m a writer based in Glasgow, where it is raining.

My novel Monstrous Devices is published by Penguin Random House/ Viking Children’s Books in the USA, and by Oneworld Publications/ Rock The Boat in the UK. It’s an adventure for readers aged roughly between the ages of 9–83, but older people are allowed to read it, too.

As a freelancer, I’ve written about music, film, TV, photography and other things for newspapers, magazines and other places including Uncut, The Guardian, the BBC and The Royal Photographic Society Journal, among others. You can find some examples if you visit the Writing page. There’s information on other books I’ve written or contributed to on the Books page, and details about some liner notes I’ve done for record projects on the Liner Notes page.
