SISTERS AT THE EDGE OF THE WORLD with a misty mountain view

Set in 1st century Scotland, my latest novel, SISTERS AT THE EDGE OF THE WORLD, includes the battle of Mons Graupius between the Romans and the Caledonian tribes. The book features a neurodivergent main character and some rather complicated romance!

The Mermaid and the Bear

There’s a great review of The Mermaid and the Bear over on The Inquisitive Inkpot: “This is where I connected with Isobell: I connected with her when the fragility of her world suddenly mirrored the fragility of mine. So to speak, I met her in the details.”

And another here on Instagram: “The author has written such a triumphant tale of love, bravery, and true magic for these women and all women.”

The Mermaid and the Bear

Set in a fictional castle in Aberdeenshire, Ailish Sinclair’s debut novel, THE MERMAID AND THE BEAR, features an often overlooked event in history, the 1597 Aberdeen witchcraft panic, and a love story.

  1. These are lovely photos. I’m heading to the coast tomorrow and can’t wait to get out on the sand and hear the waves crashing. It’s the one thing I miss at my home in the mountains. Your excellent reviews are well deserved. Enjoy! – oh, and just checking – did you get my emails with the Miss Livingstone documents? I hope you have a good weekend! -Sheri

  4. This was lovely… even without photos images it would fill the reader’s mind with images. Thanks for stopping at my blog. I’m moving from poetry to fiction for awhile, but poetry is buried deep in this writer’s heart.
