I am a writer, for screen stage, page and radio. Four novels, two story collections, five non-fiction books. Many hours of screen and radio drama and documentary. I am the programme leader of MATV - masters degree in television screenwriting. I continue to write, which I have been doing for 25 years. My next book 'Everything Passes, Everything Remains - Freewheeling through Spain, Song and Memory' is out soon. I write and lecture on creative writing, literature (especially Scottish and Hispanic), music and songwriting, social history (in particular British colonialism, Spanish history).
