heatherHello. I’m Heather.

I’m a freelance publishing person in Scotland. I write about books and publishing events, as well as interviewing bands. I do digital marketing. I recently ran a book festival for The Saltire Society, which was fun. Find out more about my freelance work here.

I graduated from the University of Stirling with an MLitt in Publishing (with Distinction, winner of the Routledge Prize for Most Distinguished Student) and a BA (Hons) in Journalism. I was also nominated for the Bookseller’s Trailblazer Awards 2016, for people in the publishing industry under 30.

I like rock ‘n’ roll, books, digital, marketing, writing, and my dog. I’ll be working in Scotland’s publishing industry for as long as they’ll have me, preferably banging on about how wonderful books are and helping get the word out there.
