Welcome to my website where you can find out about what I write.

Love Begins at 40 was published on July 18th.

Maisie buys a holiday home in Largs, Scotland, and immediately befriends her elderly neighbour, Elizabeth. Her son, James, is still reeling from the loss of his son. Neither he or Maisie are looking for a relationship, so they’re both surprised when their closeness leads to intimacy. As Maisie approaches her 40th birthday, tragedy strikes and she’s forced to decide what she really wants from life.


Festival Fireworks, a contemporary Scottish romance was published as an ebook on April 18th.

27 year old Aussie, Jill Kennedy has arrived in Edinburgh during the Festival to stay in her aunt’s empty flat. Immediately, she crosses swords with her new neighbour, Andrew MacCallum-Blair. To make things worse, she discovers he is her boss in the temporary job she has taken so that she can afford to see Scotland.


A Scottish Childhood: Growing up a Baby Boomer is available from Amazon either in the UK or abroad. It’s a collection of the articles I wrote for the magazine Scottish Memories, illustrated with the many wonderful photos my father, a keen amateur and prize-winning photographer, took of us as we grew up in the West of Scotland.A Scottish Childhood


One of my latest books is Take  Leaf Out of My Book, a selection of  12 short stories, all different, which will appeal to many tastes.leaf-cover-09-16

And my children’s book of short stories and poems with a difference is now available on Amazon. Read the rationale behind this book on my June 2017 blog entry A Drop of Rainbow Magic.

  1. Dear Ann,

    I was a regular attender for a year at the Ayr Writers’ Group a few years ago. I seem to recall we had a common interest in Finland. I have now self-published my first novel pseudonymously – there is an acknowledgement of the Group’s contribution – and I was wondering if you and/or the Group would be interested in a complimentary copy. If so, is there an address I could send it to, please?

    Kindest regards,
