I have lived on the side of Loch Ness for most of my life. In 1979 I conceived the Loch Ness Centre and Exhibition and it opened on 3rd May 1980. I also invented the board game, NESSIE HUNT, wrote the MACBETH EXPERIENCE audiovisual show and staged THE STORY OF SCOTLAND at Fort Augustus Abbey. I have appeared in many documentaries.
Sadly, I was cheated out of my share of the Loch Ness Exhibition, but my involvement in the subject continued until 1991 and since then I've been the main commentator on Loch Ness and wrote LOCH NESS UNDERSTOOD in 2010, easily the most comprehensive book on Loch Ness ever produced. My life in tourism also led me to write SCOTLAND'S BLOODY HISTORY which explains the history of our country chronologically, using all the very bloodiest of events.
I now write science fiction.
I love old-school science fiction of the Clarke, Heinlein, Asimov, Aldiss, Clement genres. MINDSLIP and THE VISITOR contain a lot of real science and are very descriptive stories.
My favourite films are PASSENGERS & SPHERE.

My books >
MINDSLIP Frightening mind-swapping adventure.
THE VISITOR Woman astronaut finds an alien artefact in low-Earth orbit.
GREEN DOOR A man walking his dog ends up saving humanity
MOONSCAPE The moon is dead, but what if something were hibernating in the dust?
FEDERATION An empire of 250,000 worlds stumbles across the Earth. What could possibly go wrong?
You'll also find an essay on Mars and an essay++ on the moon conspiracies if you'd like to learn something about those two subjects.
I hope you enjoy my work. Please comment and please, please leave votes.
