Lorne Jackson

Lorne Jackson began his career as a diarist at a precociously youthful age, when his parents bought him a blank notepad at seven-years-old. When he realised that he was unlikely to witness much in the way of momentous events from his vantage point in a West Lothian council house, Lorne took a sabbatical from diary writing. In the ensuing years Lorne worked as a travel writer, columnist, books editor, restaurant reviewer, feature writer and all-round Jackson-of-all-trades, before returning to his initial love when he took over the fabled mantle of Herald Diarist.
