She was the Scottish National Party's Press Officer for many exciting and sleepless years and then a researcher and producer at BBC Radio Scotland. She won the Canongate Prize in 2001, and a Royal Mail award for her book First Aid for Fairies in 2008. She now lives in Leith, and works as a fulltime writer and storyteller.
