Thank you for taking time to join me today, Maggie. It's always a pleasure to hear about your work.
Maggie Craig is a Scottish writer and historian,
author of the ground-breaking and acclaimed Damn’ Rebel Bitches: The Women of
the ’45, When the Clyde Ran Red, a popular history of Red Clydeside, and
several page-turning historical novels. Her Glasgow & Clydebank novels are
set during the first half of the 20th century and are inspired by the joys,
struggles and sense of humour of her own family, although they are also works
of research and imagination. One Sweet Moment is a poignant and passionate tale
of Old Edinburgh. Her latest novel, Gathering Storm, is the first in a planned
suite of Jacobite novels.
A proud Glaswegian, she and her Welsh husband Will now live in an old blacksmith’s cottage in a tiny village in the north of Scotland. They have two grown-up children, one lovely daughter-in-law and two cats. When not writing, Maggie enjoys photography, her favourite subjects being old buildings, wildlife, dramatic skies and wild flowers.
