My Books

I’m the author of Castles of Steel and Thunder and its sequel Pieces of Sky and Stone, young adult fantasies inspired by the folklore and storytelling traditions of the north Highlands. You can read more about the novels here and here and in various places around this website.

Buy both books here.

In 2022, I co-authored the children’s book Finn and Friends at John O’Groats with three other Caithness authors. All proceeds from the book go to the John O’Groats Development Trust to support the work they do. Read more about the book here.

Copies of Finn and Friends can be purchased from local outlets.
