“Fresh, fierce and funny, this deftly-drawn clash of small town life versus big ambition is a sharp and poignant study of growing up in 1980s Scotland. You’ll laugh, you’ll cry… you’ll cringe.'” – Karen Campbell

My latest novel, Buy Buy Baby, is published by Cranachan  It’s a bittersweet story of two very different women united in their desperate quest for motherhood.

“Buy Buy Baby is energised by the biological clocks of its main characters, and deals with complex issues of grief, betrayal, abuse, ageing, donor anonymity and single parenthood. A cracker of a read.” – Helen Fitzgerald
