(1959- ) Scottish broadcaster, journalist, editor and author, active mostly in England, primarily with the BBC from 2000. His first novel, Head of State (2014), is a political thriller set in a modestly Near Future 2017, with Charles III on the throne, Hillary Clinton the President of the USA, and a charismatic prime minister about to win a referendum confirming UK's continuing membership in the European Union. The concealing of his sudden death six days before the vote is modestly evocative of Robert A Heinlein's Double Star (1956), though Head of State remains earthbound. [JC]
