I have always loved writing and travelling, so when we were posted to Ramallah and Jerusalem I decided to concentrate on writing my travel memoir Bombs and Bougainvillea. The book is a personal account of life lived and observed both in Israel and in the Palestinian Occupied Territories. I had the opportunity to meet and get to know Israelis and Palestinians, and to enjoy their food, celebrations , culture and ways of life. Bombs and Bougainvillea was awarded first place for a non-fiction book by the Scottish Association of Writers in 2018.
I now divide my time between our homes in Edinburgh and Andalucia and continue to write legal crime fiction ( I was a lawyer in a previous lifetime).
I have just finished writing a coffee table book, Impressions of Andalucia, which showcases 70 new watercolour paintings by the British artist Peter Lawrence. It is scheduled to be published in 2020.
Bombs and Bougainvillea was published on 21st July 2020 and quickly climbed to No1 ranking in two categories of the Amazon charts. It is available in paperback and large print paperback to buy now and for pre order in digital format (release date 7th August 2020).
