He has previously produced work for the Morning Star, Life and Work Magazine, Wild Goose Publications, the Communist Review, the Action on Elder Abuse Bulletin and Rostrum Magazine. His articles also appear regularly in several local Church magazines.
His first novel, 'Silicon Glen', written in 1996 was published by Tartan Moon publishers in July 2009.
As a humorous Adventure story based on the Isle of Arran, it focussed on environmental threats to the island.
His second novel, '76', was published in July 2011, and retold the story of the Clearances that affected a small community on Arran, taking the reader to other notable parts of the Highlands and Islands of Scotland.
It was given good reviews in both the United Kingdom and in the United States.
'Just a Little Drop More', was his third novel which was released in July 2012. It focussed on the theme of inhumane and degrading treatment of vulnerable people in society.
His fourth, 'Beyond the Tree at Mamre', was a controversial novel, dealing with issues related to sexuality and Christian faith.
His last novel, 'Carrot Toppers', was published in the summer of 2016. It looked at how a small group of people caught up in a climate of austerity, rose above it to bring hope to others facing a similar situation. It is available from the Amazon UK Bookstore in paperback by clicking this link:
