About the author
Murdo Morrison is an American writer with Scottish roots. Born in Glasgow, Scotland, he has drawn on that heritage in his historical novel Roses of Winter. Murdo spent his early years in a room and kitchen in a tenement in Scotstoun similar to the one inhabited by the McIntyre family in the book.
The author’s family has many links to shipyards, shipbuilding and the Merchant Navy. The adventures of Donald McIntyre and Charlie Burns in Roses of Winter are based to some extent on the real-life wartime service of his father and maternal grandfather.
The author’s recent book, The Taste of Dust, continues the story of the characters in Roses of Winter. Murdo is currently working on a book set during The War of 1812.
