The Novel

My current project is my novel – it’s my baby and closest to my heart…

It is a story of love between two people from different worlds; she’s one of Hollywood’s top film directors, used to playing with the big boys, and winning. He’s a normal Scottish bloke, who lays carpets for a living, but has big dreams. Their worlds collide one night in Glasgow, at the wrap party, in Arta.

They’ve two weeks to play with before she’s needed in Los Angeles for editing. They fall in love soul to soul in the present, asking no questions about their respective lives. She’s escaping her present, while he’s running from his past. Everything’s perfect until reality smacks them in the face. He finds out she’s famous, that her life and time are not truly her own; she discovers the past he’s trying so hard to forget.

The story takes us from Glasgow to London, Los Angeles, Buenos Aires, Capri, Venice, and New York….Will love triumph over fear and doubt? Or does harsh reality and jagged truth kill the passion? Is there such a thing as destiny? Can we have it all?

The manuscript is almost complete…and all will be revealed…
