About the Author

Catherine Czerkawska began her writing life as a poet and playwright. Her first collection of poems, White Boats, was a joint venture with Andrew Greig, followed by a solo collection, A Book of Men, published by Akros, which won a Scottish Arts Council New Writing Award. Her many short stories have been published in an eclectic mix of magazines and anthologies including She, Company, Vogue, New Edinburgh Review and the London Review of Books.

Her full-length novels include Bird of Passage and The Amber Heart, and her most recent novel, The Physic Garden, is set in early 1800s Glasgow.

She has taught for Arvon and spent four years as Royal Literary Fund Writing Fellow at the University of the West of Scotland. She is currently serving on the committee of the Society of Authors in Scotland and offers occasional advice to other professional writers who are considering engaging with digital publishing. She is working on a trilogy of novels set in the Canaries, inspired by a winter spent living aboard a 50 foot catamaran anchored in Los Cristianos Bay.

Czerkawska has an honours degree in Mediaeval Studies from Edinburgh University and a postgraduate Masters in Folk Life Studies.
