Merryn Glover was born in a former Rana palace in Kathmandu and grew up in Nepal, India and Pakistan. Her first major work was a stage play, The Long Way Home, which was later adapted for BBC Radio, which has lead to three further radio plays for Radio 4 and Radio Scotland. Merryn’s first novel, A House Called Askival (2014), was set in India. Her second, Of Stone and Sky (2021) is set in the Highlands where she now lives. In 2019, she was appointed the first Writer in Residence for the Cairngorms National Park and is a regular contributor to The Guardian Country Diary.
