About Me

Originally from Stewarton in Ayrshire, I now live in the Outer Hebrides with my husband and our two children. Moving to the Isle of Lewis nearly four years ago, we live in an old white croft house perched on the edge of the Atlantic, where we breed Hebridean sheep and alpacas and try not to fall in.

A passionate primary teacher, I recently left the classroom to concentrate on consultancy work in education, launching my own alpaca knitwear range and of course, on my writing. 

Now at 36 years old, I am in the process of realising my longest held dream—to write a book. Eeek! I blame it on Mrs Clarke, my Primary 5 teacher, she told me I was a “budding authoress” and her comment is etched on my soul. So, twenty six years later I’d love to prove her right.

  1. If Anne Glennie doesn’t write a significant novel, I’ll be astonished. I have been hooked by two short stories, and as a previous keen reader of Scottish short stories, I think her style is already up there with the Island and remote cadences of the very best. George Mackay Brown would come to mind as a rough comparison; I want more.

    • Oh gosh, Matthew – thank you for your very kind comments – I only hope I can live up to them. Your encouragement means more than you know. Ok, going to get my pencil now…thanks again, Anne 😀
