Thanks for dropping by. You can see a video interview about my crime writing here.

Corruption, Crime & Establishment Mischief

Nowadays, we hear about Establishment corruption, criminality and the self-serving misdeeds of our leaders with alarming regularity. This link connects to my blog. You’ll find a range of categories depending on your interests.

A vengeance trail of murder and mayhem has few acceptable alternatives. Writing is one of them. Sad to say, the pursuit of evil people may end in tragedy for both sides of an investigation. Sometimes tears trickle down my cheeks as I write.

Crime writing provides a means of pursuing nasty people with imaginative and satisfying robustness. My thrillers offer a sense of recourse against corrupt people and cadres who screw us and steal our money.


Even though such people hurt me in the past, I wish them no harm. In fact, I’m grateful to such deceivers for providing, as they do, the basis of The Angels’ Share series. It’s good to have a solid foundation for fiction: rooted in grievance and amplified by a surging (if somewhat graphic) imagination.


I love family, cooking, good company, banter, sport, fun and an occasional drop of ‘The Cratur’. I live in the beautiful East Neuk of Fife, Scotland.

Prose, poetry

Writing is part of me. It took me many years to admit I’m a poet. Could it be a man thing? I have just had a video poetry reading included at the

There are many blogs … can I be that old? They are sorted by category on my website, Jyngs! At the moment, I’m arranging to sell my books, audiobooks and eBooks at my local community bookseller Kingdom Books Fife. Watch this space.

The ‘dry’ stuff

With many articles published, often on business, and the human side of work, I became tired of the dry stuff. An ambitious muse hauled me into writing fiction and poetry.

As an author who aims to entertain, I’m eager for feedback. Your views on any aspect of my work are important to me. Keep in touch.


I’m a former Chair of the Society of Authors in Scotland and now Convenor of the Scottish Chapter of the Crime Writers Association. I’m a co-founder of Writers’ Neuk.

I am the founding Chair of Colinsburgh Community Trust in the East Neuk of Fife, Scotland. It started when we, as a community, rescued our library. With the lockdown and its impact, a very important time for community action is coming. Now retired from the trust, I am proud of the benefit they bring to Colinsburgh.
