Born and raised in the Scottish Highlands, I have a keen interest in my local history and culture. I also love to learn about other places and cultures and have been fortunate enough to be able to travel a great deal, mainly within Europe.
After a varied career which involved working as a fundraiser for a national cancer charity, running a community center and working as a cultural adviser to schools.
My interests include reading, walking, cooking, scrapbooking and photographing anything that can't get out of shot fast enough.
My home life is centred around my amazing teenage daughter and an energetic young West Highland Terrier.
Writing is a passion I have had since I was a small child. I love to write about literature, film, history, travel and cookery and to share my scrapbooking ideas.
