I have published a book which tells the story of an Aberdonian military nurse who returns from Afghanistan and encounters The Grey Lady Ghost of the Cambridge Military Hospital. The novel reveals her origins and takes him to a pre-war Duthie Park, modern day Cruden Bay and back to the past to the Battle of Loos in World War One where he witnesses the Gordon Highlanders in action. This is the first in the series of Grey and Scarlet Novels by me, CG Buswell, and each book will feature a well known Aberdeen ghost and Aberdeenshire area as well as modern Scottish Infantry in action. Read the first chapter for free.

Not only do they represent the beauty of Aberdeen locally but they show the world how bonnie and professional models from Aberdeen can be. Many have gone on to represent Aberdeen and Scotland in worldwide events, have appeared on television and in films and in national weekly magazines and newspapers.
National and Aberdonian model Julia Stewart has some advice for any About Aberdeen readers thinking of becoming a model:
"A lot of girls come to me and ask how they can get into it, all I can say is to find a good photographer and have some pictures taken. Then find a reputable agency who will represent you and get you work. When applying to agencies make sure they are legit and do not ask a joining fee. If they think you can do something with you they wont charge you."

Of the event Julia Stewart said:
I am personally so excited about this. When I started out modelling in 2005 it was literally impossible to find any modelling opportunities up here in the north of Scotland and this is just the type of thing I'd have relished. I was offered regular work - but down south, and the time and expense of travel really was a stumbling block for me. I feel so passionate about bringing this kind of opportunity to the girls up here, and to prove that you donít have to live in London to make a go of modelling. Itís also so important that we abolish this culture of size zero and ensure that young girls can feel beautiful regardless of size. Ubergirl fully supports this and looks forward to conveying this message to all involved and interested in the competition. Personally I have never been discriminated against because of my weight and I have never been super skinny - I think that in certain types of modelling, for example promotional and tasteful glamour, curves are welcomed and celebrated. It is definitely a myth that you need to starve yourself to go far!!
