Margaret Morton Kirk is a writer living and working in her home town of Inverness. She has written a number of short stories, one of which, "Still Life", was runner-up in the Bloody Scotland short story competition in 2015. It was later adapted for radio and broadcast on Radio 4 as part of its Scottish Shorts series.
"The Seal Singers", a semi-mythic tale set in Orkney, won third prize in the 2016 Mslexia short story competition. And "Coming Home", a chilling insight into one family's fragmented past, was published in the Tales from Elsewhere anthology.
Her debut novel, Shadow Man is set in Inverness and is the first in a series featuring ex-Met DI Lukas Mahler.
