Angus Roxburgh was born in Yorkshire but brought up on the east coast of Scotland. He went to school in Stonehaven and went on to study Russian and German at the University of Aberdeen and the University of Zurich. Roxburgh has had a long career as a translator, writer and foreign correspondent. He was the BBC’s correspondent in Moscow and Brussels for fourteen years, and has worked for many publications, including the Sunday Times, the Guardian, the Sunday Herald, the Economist, the New Statesman and National Geographic. Outside of work he also finds time to develop his passion for singing and songwriting.

After finding success in the world of non-fiction political memoirs, with Roxburgh’s Moscow Calling being shortlisted for the Saltire Award 2018, he is now turning his hand to fiction. His upcoming novel The Unmaking of Eddie Muir will be Roxburgh’s first work of fiction and his first novel with Ringwood. He was inspired to write The Unmaking of Eddie Muir by a chance conversation with his late father about his experience of the war. The discovery of photos and documents left by his father in a suitcase sparked months of research into one of the least-known battles of the Second World War; the liberation of the Dutch island of Walcheren by various Scottish regiments.

The Unmaking of Eddie Muir will be coming out this October. Stay tuned for information about pre-ordering and the launch event!
