About us

Mac

Mac completed the first draft of his new novel and sent it off to his editor. As is her way, she was ruthless but that’s what editors are for; it’s their job. He has also been busy in his role as Chair of the Society of Authors in Scotland. Wow, that sounds interesting.

Andy

In the words of Bonnie Tyler, Andy has been “Lost in France”. Being a productive sort of guy, he has broadcast a weekly podcast on his beloved agriculture, in addition to a brand-new brood of lambs. Bravely, he gave NaNoWriMo a try. Rather him than me.

Joy

Joy has continued writing and amongst other things has finished the novel she started prior to lockdown. We look forward to a sneak preview. She has also continued with her Glasgow writing group, online.

Paul

Paul has completed his first full-length novel and is well into his second. He has continued writing academic books and producing his blog.

Catherine

Catherine has turned to reading and particularly recommends “Writing Down the Bones” by Natalie Goldberg, an American author and speaker who teaches all things writing, with a leaning towards Zen.

Jenny

Jenny has enjoyed returning to classics like Jane Eyre, favourites like Joanne Harris and Elizabeth Sprout, as well as new reads like Where the Crawdads Sing and The Midnight Library.
