Originally from Stewarton in Ayrshire, I now live in the Outer Hebrides with my husband and our two children. Moving to the Isle of Lewis nearly four years ago, we live in an old white croft house perched on the edge of the Atlantic, where we breed Hebridean sheep and alpacas and try not to fall in.
A passionate primary teacher, I recently left the classroom to concentrate on consultancy work in education, launching my own alpaca knitwear range and of course, on my writing.
Now at 36 years old, I am in the process of realising my longest held dream—to write a book. Eeek! I blame it on Mrs Clarke, my Primary 5 teacher, she told me I was a “budding authoress” and her comment is etched on my soul. So, twenty six years later I’d love to prove her right.
