About Me

About Me

I am a fiction writer, book reviewer, and writing mentor for WoMentoring. I also volunteer at Oxfam Books. Basically, my life is all books, all the time.

I have three books in print: one novel and two short story collections. My short fiction and poetry has been published in print and online, translated into Japanese and Spanish, recorded for radio and podcasts, exhibited in galleries, and distributed from a vintage Wurlitzer cigarette machine. I regularly perform at events and festivals throughout the UK and Europe.

My fourth book, The Gloaming, will be published by Harvill Secker in 2018. It’s a queer mermaid love story set on a remote island that slowly turns its inhabitants to stone. I’m currently writing a collection of horror stories called The Night Tender.

I’m 34 and live in Glasgow, where I mostly hang out with my wife Annie and our rescue dog Rosie, read books, drink coffee, listen to true crime podcasts, and dream of the sea.
