Gullane Games >
These stories are based on memories of my childhood in Gullane on the East coast of Scotland. They are set in the 1970’s and are fictionalised accounts of my personal experiences and friendships. The stories start when I am about seven years old and end when I am about fifteen. Black Panther 1 is a work of pure imagination, my brother is not a vigilante and did not kill Donald Neilson with a cricket bat.

Nursing Times >
These short stories are based on my early adult years training and working as a nurse in Fife, Oxford and London. I would like to dedicate these stories to my friends who stayed on in the nursing profession - I take my cardboard hat off to you (except you Tooje) and to the patients who I consider myself very fortunate to have worked with.
