A lighthouse family in the 1920s on the Hebridean Isle of Mull. 

A bleak but beautiful landscape, Jacobite history, Druidic myth, a 17th century shipwreck legend, and a woman in the grip of a dangerous obsession . . . the suspense builds to terrifying climax. Read more

It has been my pleasure and privilege to lead this faith-based writing group for the past five years, during which we have had over 50 meetings.

We meet in Linlithgow, Scotland, once a month on a Monday afternoon. We welcome visitors, with or without a view to joining. 

Some amazing pieces of writing have resulted from the themes we have had for each meeting.

 We have rounded up some of the best and produced four annual anthologies.

Interested in visiting and/or joining?

Five women consider themselves staunch friends . . .
An exploration of friendship under fire and a tale of
what happens when life’s parallel tracks collide.

A Good Time for Miracles 
It is 1954 and the women of a Scottish
mining community are poised to take it
forward into the second half of the twentieth
century with or without help from their men.

                    St Andrews 

one of Scotland’s oldest and best loved towns;           

     famous for golf and for its university,

where the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge first met. 

1964: age-old tradition on the cusp of change. 

 A country girl is finding her feet in the ‘ivory tower’.
 A formal Ball is looming, and the race is on to find a partner. Will she choose the boy-back-home or the 
‘Oxbridge Reject’? A game of assumptions and 
deceptions is played out. What should be a night of 
glamour and frivolity turns into calamity, and our 
characters are tested, some rising to the challenge, 
some found wanting. In the background, the older generation struggles with this new world of rebellious youth, computers, and pop music from Liverpool.
