This series is set in a small Highland town. The town is loosely based on the very gorgeous Inverary, which isn’t far from Glasgow where I grew up. For most of my adult life I’ve lived abroad, dealing with the issues that come with being in another culture. I think that’s the reason I have a fascination with the whole ‘stranger comes to town’ scenario – something that I like to explore in these books. Although each book is a stand alone novel, I like to involve some of the characters who’ve appeared in earlier books. There are some characters that are hard to keep out of the stories – 87 year old evil Betty is one of them! The Invertary (Scottish Highlands) series is now complete. The series ended with Mitch’s story in Caught, but the characters often turn up in the Benson’s Boys series.
