I live in a small town in Scotland, with my wife Carol, Son Keith, daughter Fern and two cats, Finn and Mia.

After years of making music and song writing, the Search for Ethan was my first novel. The second is Daydreams and Devils is out now.

I saw a show on TV on the glory days of vinyl. In it there was a quote along the lines of “walking down the street with an album sleeve under your arm was a statement, it said everything about you.” Taking that for a walk, here are my top ten “statements”, starting with books.
