At the age of 50, Margaret Halliday set off on her own on a trip to India, undeterred by multiple sclerosis and osteoarthritis. The travel diaries she kept evolved into Prana Soup: an Indian Odyssey, which describes her adventures in candid and sometimes hilarious detail.

Good Vibrations: a Story of a Single 60s Mum, recounts her experience of unmarried motherhood in 1960s Scotland. WWOOFing North and South is about her time as a WWOOFer (worldwide opportunities on organic farms) in New Zealand and Scotland. Her first novel, The Belly Dancer, is a romantic thriller, set in Turkey.

Margaret studied horticulture in Glasgow and then environmental science, in which she received a doctorate from Napier College, Edinburgh. She taught science in Edinburgh, married and had two children.

Everyone is welcome to join the conversation with one of our local authors.
