a Scot who got marooned in the USA over twenty years ago. I live in the wild, wet, wonderful
Pacific Northwest, and work as a doctor trying to help people who have diabetes.
I was born in Wigtownshire, in the southwest of Scotland, a quiet rural backwater
where my father was the village schoolteacher. I grew up exploring the mountains and islands of the West
Highlands of Scotland.
Now I spend time on Vashon Island and in Seattle, Washington. I
spend a lot of time in Ferry Lines and find that it helps me wile away the time to write stories. I have written two
murder mysteries for adults. These are called The Slate Creek Bridge Mystery and The
Desolation Falls Mystery. They are set in the Pacific Northwest and have a Scottish-American flavor.
They can be obtained at www.authorhouse.com
I am also writing a series of scruffy, rude, bad-tempered mystery adventures
for teens, young adults, and those who are young at heart. The first of these is The Blackhope Scaur Trilogy.
These are published by Orchard House Press at www.orchardhousepress.com I also have a blog to accompany the scuffy, rude, bad-tempered mystery adventures
called Gome World. You can check it out at: www.gomeworld.typepad.com
Most of the time I am not scruffy, rude, bad-tempered, or mysterious...
I have also written a non-fiction book called The Diabetes
Answer Book which I hope will be helpful to people who have diabetes and their families and friends.
