Flora Johnston is a writer and researcher of all things Scottish. She has written various works of non-fiction, including St Cuthbert: The Life of a Saint, Faith in a Crisis: Famine, Eviction and The Church in North and South Uist, and many other nuanced titles that explore education, architecture, and religious histories.  

Alongside her literary endeavours, Johnston worked for the National Museum of Scotland on the creation of the Museum of Scotland. Whilst researching material for these exhibitions she unearthed some remarkable stories, one of which had a particularly profound impact on her, and whose protagonist, Jonet, became the muse for her debut work of fiction.
