Well it is just two months (September 2nd) until publication of my teen novel - THE YOUNG CHIEFTAIN - so I thought I would get this site up and running. I will add to it regularly in the weeks to come and would really welcome your comments or thoughts. So if you have a moment, do say hi, or ask me any questions, or anything else that pops into your head. I promise to reply.
THE YOUNG CHIEFTAIN is my first teen novel, though I have been writing and directing for TV - as well as writing loads of music - for a good while. You'll probably gather from the title that it has a young hero - a 15 year old Californian boy - and that it is also to do with Scotland and clans and chieftains. In the days to come I'll be telling you about how I came to write the book, and how the exciting story took shape.
For now, why don't you have a look at the book 'trailer' on YouTube, search under THE YOUNG CHIEFTAIN and if you can view it in 480p 'cos it is better definition. Let me know what you think and if you can spot where some of the stunning aerial and outdoor scenes were shot.
See you soon.
