Rosemary Goring was born in Dunbar and studied social and economic history at the University of St Andrews. She was the literary editor of Scotland on Sunday, followed by a brief spell as editor of Life & Work, the Church of Scotland’s magazine, before returning to newspapers as a columnist and literary editor of the Herald, and later also of the Sunday Herald.

In 2007 she published Scotland: The Autobiography: 2000 Years of Scottish History By Those Who Saw it Happen, which has since been published in America and Russia.

Rosemary’s first novel was After Flodden. The sequel Dacre’s War was described by the Times as “highly recommended superbly evoking the Scottish Borders in Reiving times-‘a land of constant fear and hardship, as well as great beauty.’ A fast-moving tale of personal and political vengeance.
