The long-awaited book consisting of four novellas, one by me and the other three by Douglas Thompson, Margaret Elphinstone and DP Watt, is now available. It's a big, chunky volume and a fascinating book, with each of the authors taking a different take on the theme of formal gardens. My novella is inspired by the house and grounds at Inverewe, home of Mairi Sawyer, and one of my characters is loosely based on her. The garden in the story is very much Inverewe Gardens, but the story is pure fiction. I hope you'll enjoy it. You can buy a signed copy here. If you're in Europe and probably if you're elsewhere too, it will be more cost-effective to buy direct from the publisher, Zagava, in Germany - see here.
The launch event, cancelled in the autumn, is now going ahead at the Centre for Contemporary Arts, Glasgow, on Tuesday 21 February at 7pm. If you're in the Central Belt, please come and meet the authors and learn more about the book. You'll be very welcome. More details here.
