He lived in a caravan in rural Ayrshire for twenty years while learning to write poetry. His writing is informed by a lifetime interest in natural history, a subject he specialised in as one of the youngest ever regular freelancers (between 1983 and 1988) for the magazine Reader’s Digest, which then sold in the UK 1.5 million copies a month.
