Welcome to my website
I'm an astronomer, science writer, and musician based in Dundee, Scotland. On this website, now into its 20th year, you'll find about 15,000 pages of information divided into five major encyclopedia – of science, sustainable living, history, music, and science for children. There are links to all these resources on this page.
Also on this page, down the right-hand side, you'll see listed many of my books and my music album, together with links to them at Amazon. Most of the books are available in print or Kindle format; the album can be downloaded or streamed from all major digital platforms, including iTunes and Spotify.
Many thanks for stopping by. For daily updates, please follow me on Facebook and Twitter
