Caroline James Mackie

Born and raised in Edinburgh (1954), Caroline James Mackie emigrated to the Netherlands with her husband and two little girls in 1979.

She writes for the hell of it, and this story was written for her kids even although they were already outgrown the target audience by the time she’d finished it. Now that her grandchildren are at the right age, it’s time.

Other books and lots of short stories and poetry followed at odd intervals through the years.

Having long been a translator of Dutch to English, she still prefers to write in English, sometimes in (her version of) Scots. This is her first traditionally published children’s book with hopefully more to follow…
