Royal Navy veteran from Scotland.
My journey into writing started with a screenwriting certificate program at UCLA Ext. Since then, I've worked as a freelance content writer, erotica author, proofreader, professional beta reader, and content editor. I'm now working hard on my dream writing career: romantic suspense author.
When I'm not writing, I can be found drinking too much coffee, obsessing over tiny houses, and planning world domination with my husband, jezbraithwaite.blog, and our squirrel army.
Weel, as it’s Burns Night, we went oot fur the annual haggis hunt… Thay sneaky wee buggers wi thir shorter inside legs managed to wheech roon the hill awa fae us. Alas, it’s guid auld Hall’s Haggis, Neeps, and Tatties in the microwave for us the night. #TaeTheBard

Quick thanks to Chris and Gordon for taking part and sharing their awesome responses to last week’s prompt. Great work, guys!
This week’s word was a toughie. Every time I tried to come up with something, my mind kept dragging me back to the characters from my response to the Damage prompt. Instead of continuing to fight it, I decided to revisit Kelvin and Amy after they left their downed aircraft.
Welcome to the Friday Fiction Writing Challenge! Here’s a complete list of all the posts so far. Feel free to join in.
It’s been a busy week or so (read: super busy) and I’ve had little-to-no time for writing. Hopefully, things will calm down before next week and I can get back to word herding. Before we get into the post, I’d like to say a quick thanks to those who posted their responses to last week’s prompt—I’ll catch up with your posts this weekend.
Welcome #21 of Things in Scots!—a fun collaboration with my husband, Jez (Mind an gie Jez’s festive post a keek.)
For many religions, it’s the time of year for major festivities. And today’s word has one meaning in English and another in Scots. Though, they both mark the same time on the calendar. I’m not going to go too deep into why, other than to say that it could be down to making it easier to convert Pagans, etc., to Christianity.
I was just having a look through my photos and found several short videos from a recent trip to Bellahouston Park, Glasgow. I meant to post this last month—was ill and then promptly forgot. Here’s a slo-mo of falling leaves.
