Interview with Viv Billingham

What occupies your time apart from writing
Born at the end of the 2nd world war - after a lifetime hill shepherding I and my dogs and pony Arabella are officially retired - however "You can't keep and old dog down". Altho' Arabella and I are getting long in the tooth and a bit arthriticky together with the collies we still go to sheep everyday and compete in TRIALS every weekend. We bide in the most beautiful place on God's earth - a wee shepherds cott on the banks of St. Mary's Loch in Yarrow, Scottish Borders. I arrived here seventeen years ago and believed I'd died and gone to heaven - and do you ken what? I DID!
