Colin MacIntyre is a multi-award winning musician, producer, author for adults and children, and playwright. Born into a family of storytellers and writers, he was raised on the Isle of Mull in the Hebrides and has released eight acclaimed albums to date, most notably under the moniker Mull Historical Society.

His debut novel The Letters of Ivor Punch (W&N/Orion) won the 2015 Edinburgh International Book Festival First Book Award and he has just adapted it for the stage at A Play, A Pie & A Pint in Spring 2019. He was voted Scotland's Top Creative Talent at the Glenfiddich Spirit of Scotland Awards. His memoir Hometown Tales: Highlands & Hebrides (The Boy in the Bubble) (W&N Books/Orion) and his first book for children, The Humdrum Drum with accompanying music (Little Door Books), were published in 2018.

Colin is a contributor to several writing and song writing workshop programmes, including at Scotland's National Writing Centre, Moniack Mhor. He performs and chairs From Stage to Page, a storytelling show with fellow musician-paperback writers featuring readings and songs. He has led the children's feeding and educational charity Mary's Meals in London. Colin enjoys words and music events for both adults and children. (Photo credit: Soren Kristensen / SOLK)
