Thank you for popping over to this page to find out a bit more about me.
At the moment I live in the beautiful countryside of north-eastern Scotland. My house looks out over a paddock of sheep and the iconic Bennachie (pronounced ‘Bennahy’) hills range.
I have written three vampire romance novels in the Suckers Trilogy: Living Like A Vampire, Raising A Vampire, and Killing A Vampire. Releasing A Vampire is a novelette and the prequel to the Suckers Trilogy. I’m trading the books under Folla Fiction Publishing. I’m a bit sad that the trilogy has ended, but I have plenty of new ideas in my head to write. In my Newsletter, I keep you up to date on my writing progress.
All three stories of the Suckers Trilogy are set in Maine, US, as I love that countryside. The colors during fall are so beautiful. I’ve never been there, but it’s on my bucket list of places to visit!
In November 2015, I joined a local writers’ club and have recently been invited to begin a writing club for children which I am looking forward to teaching. With the adult writers, I write short stories of about one thousand words each. You can find them under the heading ‘Short Stories’ at the top of the page. I have compiled twenty of them from 2016-2017 into a little bundle, called Short Shockers, and it is available on Amazon.
I love blogging although I admit my novel writing has priority. What do I blog about? My writing, the books I’ve read, the movies I’ve watched (I watch more movies than I read books). Now and again I do a guest blog on other people’s blog and will let you know when and where this happens. I’ll try and get more guest bloggers to post on my blog as well. I will also be blogging about my home renovations and my weight loss journey. Sigh. So much to write, so little time!
In February 2016, I started Aberdeenshire Film Productions, a club for people enjoying making short films. I have the role of writer, producer, and director of the group. It is a bit much and I do hope we can find a producer soon. Together, we try and film short stories (mostly written by me). It’s a lot of fun. One of my vampire stories that we filmed, called ‘Busted!’ was screened at the Inverness Film Festival (2017). I am so proud of that! By the way, the above image of myself at the top of this page was taken during this shoot. I love dress-ups and especially wearing my fangs 😀
As I’m trying to earn a little bit extra (being a writer doesn’t pay my bills quite yet), I’ve become an affiliate member of Amazon recently. The links to books and movies and whatnot are affiliate links, and hopefully, you don’t mind clicking on them.
You probably have seen the subscribe option already on the Home page, but I don’t want you to miss out. When you sign up, I will send you news on exclusive material, freebies, and early notification of new releases of my books. Why not give it a try? I’ll only send you an email once a month.
Click here to subscribe. The link is GDPR-friendly (i.e. it complies with European Law).
I wish you happy reading!
