As a writer, I have won several literary prizes, in particular the Scottish Association of Writers Constable Trophy for best (unpublished) novel, and have always sought to bring humour to the party. I have published three books of humorous verse (Colquhounsville-sur-Mer, Democracy for Birds and Love Songs for the Romantically Challenged) with two more in the pipeline. 

My epic memoirs of the Cold War, 'On Her Majesty's Nuclear Service', is due on the bookshelves in Feb/Mar 2018, published by Casemate(UK), the British wing of an American publisher which specialises in military history. (The book was not written for the military history market; it was written primarily for readers who know nothing about life in the Submarine Service during the Cold War). The following link should take you to Casemate's Spring Catalogue for 2018; my book is on page 5.

My satirical thriller, 'Four Women and a Torpedo' is currently with my literary agents, Sheil Land Associates, seeking a publisher. This is my serious attempt at a really funny book.

Currently, I am working on a three-act play on the subject of Robert Burns.
