About the author (1997)

MAGGIE CRAIG is the author of six novels, two works of non-fiction, including a history of the women involved in the Jacobite rebellion of 1745, and numerous newspaper and magazine articles. She comes from a family where writing is considered an entirely normal thing to do, and which numbers among its forebears the weaver-poet of Paisley, Robert Tannahill.
