About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Romance on Edinburgh's cobbled streets.

ABOUT ME

After three thoroughly glorious years in France I've left the continent behind and returned to our craggy island. I'm now living in my beloved Edinbugh where I hope to continue writing stories playing music and speaking French!

PHILOSOPHY

"I knew a simple solider boy who grinned through life with empty joy, slept soundly through the lonesome dark and whistled early with the lark. In winter trenches cowed and glum with crumps and lice and lack of rum he put a bullet to his brain and no one heard of him again. You smug faced crowd of kindling eye who watch as solider boys march by, creep home and pray you'll never know the place where youth and laughter go". Poetry is the way to my heart!
