We are all deeply saddened to hear of Beatrice Colin's passing in February 2019. Beatrice was a gifted writer, musician and creative writing tutor, who will be greatly missed by Scotland's writing community, and beyond. Our thoughts are with Beatrice's family at this difficult time.
Beatrice Colin was born in London, is a novelist/radio dramatist and has written 7 novels (two for children) and numerous plays for BBC Radio 4.
