About Angela MacRae Shanks
Angela MacRae Shanks was born in a small village at the mouth of the River Spey in northeast Scotland. Long fascinated by the lives of her ancestors, humble Highland folk—their beliefs, customs, folklore, sense of kinship, and the depth of their love for the land of their birth—she wrote her debut novel hoping to showcase a remote corner of Scotland she holds close to her heart. This is how The Blood And The Barley was born. A prequel followed, Under A Gravid Sky, and she is currently working on the third novel in The Strathavon Saga.
Angela still lives in the Highlands she loves, and most days can be found researching or working on her next project.
