Here I am in yesterday’s Herald magazine, standing in various unnatural poses. Lovely interview by Susan Swarbrick.
Hey folks, if you’re at a loose end this Friday, I’m doing a turn at this cracking online festival, chatting with top blogger and crime fiction fan Lynsey Adams. Details below.
Here’s a lovely big interview with me in the weekend’s Courier, with lots of pics of me looking awkward, and one of me as a wee kid. Sweet.
Folks, I’m having an online launch for THE BIG CHILL on 20th August along with the mighty Val McDermid, whose latest Karen Pirie novel STILL LIFE is out the same day. We’ll be chatting about the books and everything else, and maybe even play a tune or two, all in The Portobello Bookshop, my local bookshop, streamed live. You can submit questions online too, and get signed and dedicated books. Tickets here. 😀
It’s only a very rough first draft, but I’ve written the final part of The Skelfs trilogy, The Great Silence. I started this a month after my stroke and it feels like writing it has been very much part of my recovery process.
The Big Chill is having a wee adventure, swanning around all the best book bloggers for the next few weeks. Check out all the stops below. Fun!
Here’s a thing I wrote for the Royal Literary Fund about my stroke and my time in lockdown.
I’m absolutely thrilled to have a new short story in this collection of writing to support the Homeless World Cup. The collection is only £1.99, and contains amazing authors like Nick Hornby, Ian Rankin, Denise Mina & Chris Brookmyre, and it’s edited by Val McDermid. My story is called ‘Find Yersel’ and it’s another adventure for the same two characters who appeared in my story ‘Moby Dickheads’, if anyone knows that one. Get it now, gang!
