The Three Knots on Radio Four
I'm getting excited now about hearing my radio play The Three Knots 'live' on the radio next week. It always seems different with the continuity announcements etc, and knowing that one or two other people might be listening simultaneously.
I'm a writer of fiction, creative non-fiction and radio drama. Recent books include a novel, Call of the Undertow, and non-fiction Doubling Back: ten paths trodden in memory. Both are grounded in particular landscapes - a big interest of mine. I teach and facilitate creative writing in a variety of settings at home and abroad. From July 2012- June 2016 I was writer in residence with the Sick Kids Friends Foundation in Edinburgh collaborating with illustrator Cate James - see All Write. I am currently writer-in-residence at George Watson's College - see THE DOOR.
