    I am from Edinburgh, have travelled a lot, lived in France, Israel, Greece, London, Sussex, the far north of Scotland, and am now back in Edinburgh, with a collie dog, a river across the road and two Rowan trees in the garden I always wanted to be a writer but following advice to get a proper job I took myself off to the big city of London when I was just nineteen and trained to be a journalist By 21 I was a journalist on Fleet Street but soon realised this wasn t the kind of writing I wanted to do So off I went round the world having all kinds of adventures sailing yachts, sleeping on beaches, looking after children, working on kibbutz then back to Scotland for adventures looking after children with learning disabilities then studying speech and drama I became a storyteller, drama teacher and voice teacher I did this for a long while which was a great learning for a writer, then I remembered my childhood dream to be a writer So I took myself off to university, did an MA in creative writing at Sussex University and wrote The Scottish Arts Council sent me up to the far north of Scotland to be a writer in residence I didn t even know where Caithness was but that s where I went, and soon realised Scotland wasn t as small as I had thought It s miles away I lived there for five years in a cottage on the beach writing books about the sea and seals and was lucky to win the Kelpies prize 2009 for my first novel Magnus Fin and the Ocean Quest I say first novel but actually I had several other novels gathering dust in drawers So since 2007 I have been what you might call a writer And sometimes doing other related things like storytelling and voice teaching.I went to Duddingston primary school and Portobello High school where I learnt to touch type, speak French, a bit of German, play squash and spell I suppose I must have learnt a few social skills as there were two and a half thousand of us at Portobello High school I was a child and teenage athlete and I am really glad about that The Commonwealth Games came to Edinburgh when I was about ten and it was very inspiring and I went along to the races with my dad Then I joined the Edinburgh Southern harriers and spent the next five years running and jumping and throwing a discus, but mostly running and going off all over Scotland on Saturdays to run up hills cross country I am pretty fit and healthy now and I think that gave me a good boost.When I visit schools with my Magnus Fin novels children often ask what books I read as a child and I usually answer rather embarrassed Mallory Towers I wanted to be that girl in the attic who wrote stories But before that, when I was very wee, I loved nursery rhymes, and like athletics I think they gave me a boost into being a writer I love language and sounds and I remember being really young and loving the sound on my tongue of nursery rhymes like Doctor Foster went to Gloucester or with rings on her fingers and bells on her toes, she shall have music where ever she goes
