FRANCES MARY HENDRY was a teacher in Scotland for over 20 years.
She has also run a small guest house which only had visitors in the
summer, which meant she could write all winter.
Until 1986, when she won the S.A.C. Literary Award for her book Quest
for a Kelpie, the only writing she had done was for pantomimes for her
local drama club - something she still enjoys doing. She also won the
S.A.C. Literary Award for Quest for a Maid in 1988. Her first book for
Oxford University Press, Chandra , won the Writers Guild Award and the
Lancashire Book Award (see book list page for bibliography).
Her other interests include history (until men started to wear trousers)
gardening, embroidery, and amateur dramatics - especially pantomimes.
Frances lives in Nairn, Scotland.
