Orkney Nature Festival banner

Ann has recorded an exclusive one hour zoom chat with Stewart Bain for Orkney Nature Festival. In it, she discusses her experience of nature, from childhood, via time spent in Fair Isle, to present day. She also gives a unique insight into her very first series of novels, featuring George Molly Palmer-Jones, a birdwatching private eye, and his wife, Molly. Ann speaks about her husband Tim's work as an RSPB officer and reads extracts from two of her novels.
