Authors at Balfron
Pupils at Balfron High School were visited by authors Cathy MacPhail and Alex Gray last week as part of the Bloody Scotland book festival.
Cathy, who writes spooky thrillers for younger readers, gave a talk to all S1 and S2 pupils.
Before becoming a children’s author she wrote short stories for magazines, comedy programmes for radio and two romantic novels. She was inspired to write her first children’s book after her daughter was bullied at school and aims to get to the heart of serious, topical issues through the stories of her feisty characters.
Cathy has won the Royal Mail Book Award twice.
Alex Gray has published 13 crime novels set around Glasgow.
