Kirsty Scott











Kirsty was The Guardian's Scottish correspondent.  She also teaches crerative writing.  Her first novel, MOTHER'S DAY, was acquired in a two book deal by a pre-emptive offer from Hodder, on the basis of just a third of the full manuscript.  It tells the story of the friendships between four mothers whose children all attend the same exclusive private school in Edinburgh.  It is a wonderfully absorbing tale - funny, warm, moving, pacy and utterly compelling, with real insight and humanity.  Kirsty is simply a brilliant story-teller.  MOTHER'S DAY was published in hardback in Spring 2006 and quickly became a best-seller.  Kirsty's second and third books are BETWEEN YOU AND ME and the compelling family saga FORTUNE HOUSE. She is working on her fourth.
