In which country were you born, and which one do you live in now?
I was born in England and now live in my ancestral Scotland.
Which genres do you write in?
I started with short stories, then wrote my first novel, then started writing poetry and never looked back. I think of myself as someone who writes in all literary genres – with the exception of drama, but who knows for the future? – but I am probably best-known as a poet.
How many books have you had published?
I have published one collection of poetry in 2010 called Naked in the Sea, and a novel in 2012 entitled Lupa.
