As well as writing for the BBC and a number of other media outlets, he worked with disadvantaged youth in Glasgow’s notorious Castlemilk estate, which then led to him spending a year as a writer in residence at Polmont Young Offenders Prison. Relocating to Australia in 1999, he became a Probation and Parole Officer in the tourist town of Byron Bay, an experience he chronicles in his book, ‘No Previous Conviction’, published in May 2107.
