I grew up in St. Andrews and after brief sojourns in Glasgow, Barcelona and other parts of Fife, I now live in Dundee with my wife, Kathleen.  Now retired after a lifetime in education, I spend much of my time campaigning for Independence for Scotland and Justice in Palestine, helping to look after my three grandsons, following FC Barcelona and exploring old and new interests – needlework/stitching, reading, opera, ballet and going to the cinema and the local theatres.  My writings on politics can be found on my other blog – Alister Rutherford.

  1. Dear Alister,

    I hope you don’t mind me contacting you in this roundabout way, but I’m writing on behalf of the Australian Women Writers Challenge team and would like to thank you for your participation in the AWW challenge this year. I was also wondering if you’ve seen our feedback survey?


    It’s very quick (10 questions, mostly check boxes, takes 2 minutes), and will provide useful feedback to Bookseller & Publisher.

    Even if you didn’t reach your goal this year, your feedback is valued, and I hope you’ll join us again for AWW Challenge 2013.

    Kind regards,


  2. I too am glad you found my blog. Hope you find some of the posts interesting. Dundee is a lovely city and I hope you find time to revisit sometime. Like your blog too.
