I’m a Scottish YA writer, originally from the Black Isle in the Highlands. After 10 years in Edinburgh and a few stints elsewhere, I’m currently living in Ibiza (which is nowhere near as debauched as most people seem to think – just please, please don’t ever sing the Vengaboys song in my presence).
My all-time favourite books include Phillip Pullman’s His Dark Materials, Naive. Super by Erlend Loe, A Tale for the Time Being by Ruth Ozeki, How to be Both by Ali Smith, The Sun is Also a Star by Nicola Yoon, The Book of Strange New Things by Michel Faber, The House of the Spirits by Isabel Allende, and More Than This by Patrick Ness.
When I’m not reading or writing, I’m usually studying foreign languages, running or watching inordinate amounts of TV. Other stuff I like includes: cats, tea, Duolingo, cats, Eurovision, Céline Dion, taiyaki, postcards, Catalan pop music, sudoku, empanadas, cheese.
