"...wit, a healthy cynicism and perhaps a hint of sadness". (Dundee University Review of the Arts)

The Assassination Museum
(Red Squirrel Press 2010)

“alive with possibility and excitement: the possibility of remaking poems within the Scottish Literary heritage, the excitement of using rhyme and half-rhyme to amplify a voice rather than stifle it, the possibility of using memory to create and shape real, lasting works of art, and the excitement of a new voice emerging with confidence and real ability..."   (Ian McMillan, Poet and Broadcaster)
