Past appearances include: Edinburgh International Book Festival (2011, 2013-2015), Aye Write!, YayYA!, Dundee Literary Festival, On the Rocks, West Port Book Festival, CoastWords…

Readings/live performances include events for Waterstones, Pulp Fiction, the Mitchell Library, Summerhall and the award-winning Edinburgh Bookshop. I’ve even been interviewed on Radio Scotland by Phil Jupitus!

Booking me

Performance and teaching require a good deal of time and energy, and I correspondingly charge professional rates (as recommended by the Society of Authors). Please bear this in mind when contacting me to arrange an event! Thanks.

You may like to know that I’m eligible for Live Literature Funding – visit the Scottish Book Trust website to find out more.
