SO MANY LIVES AND ALL OF THEM ARE YOURS has now been published! It is a stand-alone sequel to my prize-winning THE SOUND OF MY VOICE. Both books were published on 7 September. As you can see above, the new novel instantly became Blackwell’s Scottish Book of the Month, complete with a window display all to itself.
SO MANY LIVES AND ALL OF THEM ARE YOURS has already received some very generous reviews. Here is a sample:
Such are my computer skills that while all the above has taken you only a few seconds to read, on this side of the keyboard a long, long, long morning has passed. Enough excitement for one day.

Now back over to Ron:
I love words, their sound and their magic. Having published nearly 20 books of poetry and fiction for adults and, more recently, for children, I am as excited now to begin writing every morning as when I first started. My work has won many awards and prizes both here and abroad. My creative writing workshops are all about helping writers (especially primary school pupils) access their imagination.
I look forward to hearing from you, should you ever wish to get in touch!
