I am a writer, editor and singer-songwriter from Shetland, currently based in Glasgow. My articles, essays and reviews have been published widely, and I've written on a variety of subjects, including politics, literature, landscape and agriculture.
My book, Sixty Degrees North: Around the World in Search of Home, will be published by Polygon in July 2015, and I've recently completed a second book, The Un-discovered Islands.
I'm currently editor of the online magazine The Island Review, and was previously editor of Shetland Life magazine for five years. As a singer-songwriter, I have released four albums and an EP, and performed live in venues across the UK.
