The complete sheer energy of putting ink to paper is only comparible to surveying everything in a 360 degree turn round atop the Wallace Monument.


Background Information

Robert Louis Stevenson,Roald Dahl,MarkTwain(Samuel Clemens) These are the authors that have enfluenced my writing style the most.There are three other people who enfluenced me the most. My Grandmother, my fifth grade teacher, and my 11th grade and 12th grade journalism teacher(same person). All these people had the most impact on my writing. Being a Scot doesn't hurt either. We Scots have the gift of the good tale and a natural ability to keep children spellbound with a good yarn.

Birth Place
Elgin,  Scotland
