Short stories and poems

My short story collection, tentatively titled ‘The Need for Better Regulation of Outer Space’, will be published in May 2015.

I’m one of the poets included in the recent anthology of new Scottish poetry Be the First to Like This published by Vagabond Voices. You can hear me reading some of these poems on Scottish Poetry Library’s stream on soundcloud.
