I grew up in Aberdeen with a thick skin (necessary for keeping warm, and because of having English parents), moved to London and am slowly making my way North again. I have worked in the arts in a variety of guises: as a potter, art teacher, producer of press junkets, actor, publicity assistant, PA, jazz singer and chef. All of which are elaborate displacement activities for writing.
