Based in the (very) far north of Scotland I write horror and speculative fiction at the top of the map. I enjoy reading a wide variety of work with a particular soft spot for William Gibson, Neil Gaiman and Pablo Neruda. I plan to be posting speculative or horror stories every fortnight, with occasional literary stories sprinkled in. My interests outside of writing are music, walking by the sea and river, dark comedy and pugs.

This is a photo from a series I took at the Guilvinec harbour, in Brittany. It was a harsh summer day, with lots of rain and wind. Quite common in this region. The fishermen were back, after many hours at sea, their boats full of fish and seafood. The bright colours catch my eyes in the dull environment created by the weather.
