About the Author

Meg Henderson was born in the Townhead area of Glasgow in 1948, the youngest and only girl of three children. Thereafter she lived in the Blackhill, Drumchapel and Maryhill areas of the city. She gratefully left her convent secondary at sixteen, and though writing had always been her main interest, she spent some years working within the NHS before going to India with Voluntary Service Overseas. On her return she married, went to live on a Scottish island and became an adoptive and a foster parent. She now works as a journalist and lives with her husband on the East coast of Scotland.

Reviews

"Meg Henderson's journalistic background undoubtedly adds to the ease with which she describes people and places, making them at once familiar and freshly seen. Finding Peggy is full of rich detail told with humour and sharpness." * Scotland on Sunday * "A warm and vivid memory of Glasgow life - it provokes nostalgia and anger in equal measure. Apart from anything else, this is a gripping story, told with real passion" -- Magnus Linklater
