Wayne was born in south Wales but has lived and worked in Scotland since 1987. His short stories and poems have been widely published and won many awards. His debut story collection, Furnace (Freight, 2012), was shortlisted for the Saltire Scottish First Book of the Year and longlisted for the Frank O’Connor Award. His first novel, Mercy Seat, was published in February. He was a finalist in the Manchester Poetry Competition in both 2013 and 2014. He teaches at the University of Aberdeen.

A remarkable new poet who is intelligent, insightful, imaginative and utterly assured.
– Carol Ann Duffy

‘Fossil Record’ is the most impressive first small collection I have read for years. The delicate melancholy of these 20 beautiful poems remains to haunt me. Whole lines and images linger. The poet’s boyhood experience swims under the surface of the man like trout in a stream. This is the music of easy, natural language transfiguring the ordinary. It reads like thought. I can’t wait for a full collection from this poet.

— Gillian Clarke
