Various writing projects I’ve pursued outside of the newspaper trade

‘Bobbies in Jamaica’, a full-length investigation I wrote into crime and gang warfare in Jamaica, was included in the Bad Idea Anthology, published by Portico. I was honoured to give a reading from the chapter at the V&A as part of the anthology’s launch.

A copy of the collection can be bought here from Amazon


I was delighted to write the spoken word narrative for ‘Escape – The Story of Jan Baalsrud and the Shetland Bus’. A suite of original music by Shetland sisters, Jenna and Bethany Reid, it documents the remarkable story of the clandestine operation between Shetland and German-occupied Norway during World War II.

A CD of the album can be bought here at Coda Music in Edinburgh, or downloaded via iTunes
