About me

Introduction I am a hermit in my log cabin beyond the Arctic Circle, a tinker by origin from the Orkney Isles now here in Lappland. There are simple ideas I live by: a view from a peak must be earned by a climb, a night in the desert gives the best sleep, and stories are found deep in forests. For me, hospitality is sacrosanct – high up on a mountainside when the winds gather, or in the desert when the mirage is no longer real, and especially just after dawn among pine needles, sheltered by mighty branches. I travel because I write: if you want to climb a mountain, you must start at the top.
