Himself by the Seaside

Ian Anderson

Ian Anderson has had a varied career in computing then internal auditing. He developed his recent interest in poetry during a course with the Open University and this prompted him to join Lemon Tree Writers. A number of his poems draw upon his other recently developed passion for horse riding.

Alasdair Gordon

Alasdair Gordon was born in Aberdeen. He travelled to Greece in a green-and-yellow Morris van in 1969 and stayed there for fifteen years, working as an English teacher. He enjoys Japanese forms like haiku, and Greek poetry and folk-songs. He finds translating the latter a fascination and a stimulus.

Bill Robertson

Since joining the Lemon Tree Writers, Bill Robertson has produced a substantial number of short stories mostly dealing with darker side of life. His work has appeared in the Lemon Tree Anthology Journeys, Chapman and most recently He is threatening to write a novel one day.

Cal Wallace

Cal Wallace wrote The Cat Sat on the Mat at the age of five. Accusations of plagiarism quickly ensued and his crayons were confiscated. After decades of therapy he resumed his writing ambitions, creating many fine stories. His first collection, The Man with the Silver Eye, was published in 2010 by Blue Salt Publishing.
