Author of the Year – Sunday Herald Culture Awards 2017
I am the author of three novels, The Disappearance of Adèle Bedeau (Saraband, 2014), the Man Booker shortlisted His Bloody Project (Saraband, 2015), and The Accident on the A35 (Saraband, 2017). His Bloody Project is to be published in over 20 languages including German, Russian, Chinese, French, Spanish, Farsi and Estonian. I’m currently working on my fourth novel.
I’ve appeared at festivals and events in Edinburgh, Los Angeles, New York, Adelaide, Macau, Estonia, Moscow, Cheltenham, Berlin, Paris, Glasgow, London, Ullapool and many others.
I was born in Kilmarnock in Scotland and now live in Glasgow. I’ve previously lived and worked in Prague, Porto, Bordeaux and London. I’m represented by Isobel Dixon at Blake Friedmann.
For event organisers please note: I’m part of the Scottish Book Trust’s Live Literature Database which can help with funding for events in Scotland.
For anyone looking for feedback or editorial assistance on their manuscript I wholehearted recommend Victoria Evans, Story Consultant
