Gavin originates from “somewhere near Paisley” but has lived in Edinburgh’s South Side since 1989, apart from a short venture to London. He has been writing fiction for twelve years.
His stories have appeared in a variety of publications, from the dizzy heights of Scottish Book Collector and Groundswell to the rarefied havens of 3AM and Pinball Player magazines. He has scripted comic strips for Liverpool’s Weird City magazine. Watch out for his chilly contribution to Canadian anthology Grunt & Groan: The New Fiction Anthology of Work and Sex.
His novel for young adults Mirror Widow won the Instant Books print-on-demand competition at the Edinburgh Book Festival 2002. All publishers and agents seem determined to call it Mirror Window.
Gavin is an ex-busker, ex-handyman, ex-public relations executive, ex-system administrator, and an excellent judge of character.
