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.




This year the Festival will celebrate Scotlandís Year of Innovation, Architecture and Design and will also include a strand of events dedicated to the history and heritage of the region.

There will also be a school and children programme for which all events are free. These will include magic shows, learning about secret species, indulging in making your own crafts and hearing some of your favourite authors. There really is something for everyone!
