Scottish Travellers are as diverse as any other part of society and, as a tiny cog in a big wheel, my books feature how different we all are!
Each spring we left our wintering ground and travelled the country, working wherever the opportunity arose.
Berry-picking, stoning fields, gathering brock wool (hip locks) and tattie-howking.
I lived from 5-15yrs old in a single-decker bus. I promised my father that one day I would write a book on the old ways, but not until I reached 50yrs did I put pen to paper.
Six books later I have kept my promise. We were as free as birds!
