Rae Cowie


Rae is keeping everything crossed as she prepares her first novel to be sent to agents. She's a member of both the Scottish Association of Writers and the Romantic Novelists’ Association New Writers’ Scheme, winning the Elizabeth Goudge first chapter competition in 2015. She cut her blogging teeth as part of the Novel Points of View blog team - blogging about reading, writing, art and more. She has lived in various locations around Scotland but is currently rooted in the North-East, finally finding time to develop her writing.
