It’s great to see an article about my current book project, Green Gold, featuring in the autumn issue of Royal Botanic Garden Edinburgh’s magazine The Botanics.

Green Gold is a biographical fiction novel about plant hunter John Jeffrey, combining meticulously-conducted research of true events with fictionalised personal exploits. I am planning to hold an exhibition at RBGE next year, in collaboration with botanical artist Nicola Macartney. Both the publication of the book and the exhibition at RBGE are entirely reliant upon support from future readers as this is a crowd-funded project.

Find out how you can support the project, and have your name (or that of a loved one) included in the book, at:
