I have published a book which tells the story of an Aberdonian military nurse who returns from Afghanistan and encounters The Grey Lady Ghost of the Cambridge Military Hospital. The novel reveals her origins and takes him to a pre-war Duthie Park, modern day Cruden Bay and back to the past to the Battle of Loos in World War One where he witnesses the Gordon Highlanders in action. This is the first in the series of Grey and Scarlet Novels by me, CG Buswell, and each book will feature a well known Aberdeen ghost and Aberdeenshire area as well as modern Scottish Infantry in action. Read the first chapter for free.



John also performs comedy cabaret around the North East and is available for a range of activities. He appears at venues such as Cafe Drummonds Bar, Aberdeen in Comedy Capers.

John also co-presented the Sunday morning show from 10 am until 1 pm along with Paddy Burns. The mixture of Irish and Scot's humour blends into a fine banter laden show. Sadly Paddy Burns died in 2006 and he and their show is much missed.
