2016 - What a Year

So in the spirit of the impending holiday season Her's a little sample of I've been up to this year:

A) Air Miles - I've managed to rack up more miles in the air than we thought was possible.

B) Diversity - clients that I've worked with while helping Stein IAS are spreading across the globe - Trelleborg, Western Union Business Solutions,, Bureau Van Djik and Samsung to name a few.

c) Crystal Clear - Glencairn continue to go from strength to strength - I'm writing this while in Chicago visiting their new distributor.

d) Scottish Enterprise - I'm still helping out with new start ups in association with The Business Trinity - try chocolate, software and plants this year.

e) Writing - with all the time in the air I've had the opportunity to write a new novel, due out February, edit two existing books, to be relaunched in February and agree a new book to come out in the USA next year. I was published in a crime anthology in the U.S. and made it across to Bouchercon (the U.S.'s largest crime festival) in New Orleans. Oh and this was year 5 of Bloody Scotland, Scotland's International Crime Writing Festival - as a founding board member I'm delighted to say we had a cracking festival in September and that's now 5 years of straight growth in visitor numbers.

Apart from that it's been quite quiet, really.
