William Wallace: Scotland's Hero

William Wallace: Scotland’s Hero

The Story of Scotland’s Warrior Hero.

Wallace’s role in rescuing his country from conquest by England is well known, and yet what we know about him for a fact could be written on a postcard. This biography, while acknowledging this significant limitation, recreates his life by considering the context in detail. Likewise, the sort of man he was can be sympathetically imagined.

Set against the brutal background of the War of Independence, this thrilling retelling of Wallace’s story helps us sense the real man obscured by the mists of legend.

This is the companion volume to Robert the Bruce: Scotland’s King by the same author.

Surveying the Wreckage

Surveying the Wreckage

Considering the gathering storm and wondering who will deliver us from it, gods and heroes being posted missing again.

Everyone comes to feel that they are living through the end of days, eventually though it will be true. And, as we run out of rail on our single track to better, perhaps it will fall to us to achieve this final and dubious distinction. As is often the case, much brightness of spirit and humour is to be found within the gloom.

Scotland's Saint

Scotland’s Saint

A light-hearted, but erudite collection of poems exploring Scotland’s Christian heritage through the life of its most famous saint, Saint Columba.

The collection moves between the heroic age of Scottish Christianity and our own time. The saint’s return is long overdue, no-one’s listening anymore to the message.
Except, maybe, you!

Makers and Destroyers

Makers and Destroyers

Glasgow poems. The author’s hame toun.

A 1960’s street-level portrait of the hammers and tongs coal-fired world that was soon to be replaced and improved.
Or maybe not.

We need a judge and jury on this; I bagsy the judge, yous can be the jury.

The Sex Doctor

The Sex Doctor

When bras and panties don’t work, and sorries are not on the cards, there is always the police.

The potent mix of ambition and greed stirred in life’s pot with a fair dose of bile until converted to guilt. With guilt comes blame and then, in turn, the victim. Fate’s long teasing game played with our life is explored in this biography of sorts. It’s all true, especially the lies.
