I am a writer, musician, poet, and author. I was raised in Edinburgh. I attended St Thomas of Aquinas school. My childhood every wasn't happy, but it was those turbulentyears that shaped who I am. A literal right turn (spirit led) proved to be the instigating factor guiding me away from the ignorance and impetuosity that is the folly of youth.
Writing didn't happen until I was in my early twenties, I gradually nurtured my abilities after getting top marks in a couple of essay exams. Music captivated me and my instruments are the guitar and the piano. I had several jobs including nightclub gigs around my native city through my teens to late twenties early thirties. I travelled to Taize in France, a community of multi-denominational faiths based near Dijon in France, also to Milan and Japan where I played piano in hotels around the Tokyo-Yokohama districts. I returned to Scotland where I am presently married; and have one young child.
