This is an image of the Writers' Museum in Edinburgh, which I have been lucky enough to visit.
It has an entire floor dedicated to Robert Louis Stevenson, another to Sir Walter Scott, and a third devoted to Robert Burns.
In the courtyard outside is Makar's Court, where Scottish literary quotations are inscribed in the paving stones. Beautiful!
I'm a writer and a reader and a history geek, especially the history of Scotland. Hey, my last name's McAbee; naturally I love Scotland. It is, after all, the center of civilization. I live in a 200-year-old log cabin in the woods of upstate South Carolina, with a delightful husband, two spoiled dogs, and a resident Revolutionary War ghost who wanders past the window occasionally. Apparently, according to a local historian and parapsychologist, she was a servant girl who refused to give up her master's whereabouts to Colonel Banastre Tarleton and was slaughtered for her efforts. Poor girl but she is a perfectly pleasant occasional visitor.
I write science fiction, fantasy, horror, steampunk, mystery and probably a few other genres from time to time. I also write a monthly column for LUNA STATION QUARTERLY as the Grey Lenswoman, a name I thought suitable as I love old sf pulp, and I am a woman of a certain age aka old woman aka crone. And proud of it.
My books can be found in a variety of places like Amazon, Smashwords and Rogue Phoenix Press. I have stories in anthologies at Moonstone Books, Broken Eye Books, and others, including the recent release OF POETS, SPIES AND UNEARTHLINESS: OTHERWORLDLY TALES IN THE TIME OF SHAKESPEARE AND MARLOWE.
I also love old pulp and serialized fiction, and I have several ongoing and finished stories at Amazon's new Kindle Vella platform.
