What do I write? As a freelance writer, anything anyone will pay me to write. As a novelist, young adult, adult action/adventure.


I was born in Glasgow, Scotland and had my early education somewhat interrupted by evacuation during World War II. After taking a degree in Chemistry and Mathematics at St Andrews University I worked for some time as a Chemical Engineer, and had some adventures in France, before becoming a teacher. My wife Lyn, son David, and I relocated to Canada in 1967 where my second son, Iain, was born. While teaching in Canada, I completed a Bachelor's degree in Education and a Master's degree in Educational Psychology at the University of Manitoba. For thirteen years I was the principal of a grade school -- Grades Eight through Twelve. 
I now live in Ottawa to be close to both sons, daughter-in-law Allison, and three grandchildren: Gillian, Malcolm, and Jennie.

For the past twenty-one years I have been a freelance writer and editor, although I started writing much earlier.
