She was previously Head of Literature at the Scottish Arts Council, presenter of book programmes for Scottish Television, and founder Director of the Edinburgh International Book Festival (of which she is now a Board member).

She is also a former Committee member of the Association of Authors’ Agents and was shortlisted in 2014 for Agent of the Year Award. She is Chair of the Bloody Scotland crime writing festival.
