Brief details about myself, my work and my family

I am married with two daughters and stay near Livingston in the county of West Lothian, Scotland. My job as a Regional Manager for Semi Chem sees me travel extensively throughout the country.I have been involved in the retailing game for nearly forty years, having got involved by accident after my dream of being an RAF pilot was shattered!


I am a past playing member and Chairman of Livingston & District Cricket Club. I was a member of Junior Chamber Bathgate and founder member and president of Junior Chamber Livingston.I served as Chairperson of West Calder High School Board for six years and I am a member and elder of Kirk of Calder. I am the Stewardship Group leader for the church and I was a member of the Steering Group for the Oldeani Project 2017 which raised £85,000 for a children's home in Tanzania.


My hobbies include spotting Eddie Stobart Trucks, following Hibernian Football Club through thick and thin, most other sports, gardening, travel, transportation and of course writing!


I have always loved writing and have helped to publicise most of the clubs and organizations that I have been involved in over the years. It was however studying for my MBA that tested my skills and after I graduated from that the enrolment onto a writing course that has seen me become more passionate than ever about writing!
