Biography of Author Lizzie Finlayson

Lizzie Finlayson was born and brought up in Torry, Aberdeen, Aberdeenshire, Scotland. As a child she enjoyed writing but was discouraged by her mother who destroyed her works and sent her to work in a fish factory at 16.

It was to be many years later that Lizzie Finlayson wrote and publish her first book - at the young age of 90! In 2003 her book No Way To Live was published. It recalled the tale of her friend, Elsie, who was an illegitimate child. It describes her upbringing with her auntie in a deprived area of Torry in Aberdeen.

Hot on the heels of its success she led the Denmore Court Oral History Group from the sheltered accommodation complex where she lives. Together the group members created the book A Richt Bourachie o' Fowk where they recall their memories of Aberdeen in the early 20th Century.

Along the way, he pairs up with fellow survivor Imogen. But she enjoys killing the living dead far too much. Will she kill Jason in her blood thirst? Or will she hinder his journey through this zombie filled dystopian landscape to find his pregnant wife?
The Fence is the first in this series of post-apocalyptic military survival thrillers from the torturous mind of local horror and science fiction novel writer C.G. Buswell.

Aberdeen Lynne Golden Retriever

Have you seen my beautiful golden retriever Lynne out and about in Aberdeen? Ask her for a high-five! She's a Bravehound PTSD assistance dog, so we'll often be in shops, restaurants, and the cinema together.

We've written a book where I talk about growing up in Aberdeen and then joining the army to be a medic and nurse, and developing military Post Traumatic Stress Disorder.

I also talk about losing my son to suicide and the therapy I have had at Royal Cornhill Hospital and grief support groups in Aberdeen.

The author, Damien Lewis, said of Lynne:

"A powerful account of what one dog means to one man on his road to recovery. Both heart-warming and life-affirming. Bravo Chris and Lynne. Bravo Bravehound."
