‘Dumfries and Galloway Life’ March 2015 edition sees me answering ten questions about ‘My Dumfries and Galloway life’         It was fantastic to be asked and to reflect on the places I have been and people I have met since moving to Dumfries in July 2013. A very proud moment for me. […]

In a bit of a Fankle

Posted: 21st December 2014 by Lucy Cameron in Uncategorized

This month I have been lucky enough to guest edit ‘The Fankle.’ ‘What’s The Fankle?’ I hear you cry? ‘The Fankle’ is a pamphlet (for want of a more appropriate word) that showcases local writing talent in the Dumfries and Galloway area.

Posted: 15th August 2014 by Lucy Cameron in Uncategorized

I have had some business cards designed and printed.   They were designed by a friend, Anna Price. I am very pleased with them. You all know next time you see me one will be winging your way – If it hasn’t already.    

Where to begin to write about the Theakston Festival 2014? The outstanding and well organised venue? The fun and informative panels? The addition of a beer tent? The book tepee? The chance to chat to dozens of crime readers and writers at the bar? All of the above and much, much more is what makes […]

I am currently attending a very interesting creative writing class at the University of West Scotland. Last week we focused on character.
