Andrew Murray Scott is a fiction writer based in Broughty Ferry on the sunny east coast of Scotland. His first novel, Tumulus, won the inaugural Dundee International Book Prize in 2000 and received warm reviews of the “vibrant new voice in Scottish fiction” variety and was described as “a tour-de-force”.
Andrew has published five novels to date: Estuary Blue (2001) from the same publisher, Polygon, The Mushroom Club (2007), The Big J (2008) and In A Dead Man’s Jacket, Andrew’s first e-novel, which is available for both Kindle and Kobo e-readers.
Previously a journalist and now a media professional, Andrew has also written a number of non-fiction book titles including biographies of counter-culture icon Alexander Trocchi, The Making of the Monster (1991, reprinted in 2012) and John Graham of Claverhouse, Bonnie Dundee (1989, reprinted 2000) the charismatic leader of the first Jacobite rebellion in 1689, whose letters Andrew also collected and edited for the Scottish History Society. Andrew also edited a collection of Trocchi’s unpublished writings, Invisible Insurrection: A Trocchi Reader, reprinted in 1996.
He has written non-fiction books on the life and times of the city of Dundee including a popular and much-reprinted concise historical guide, Discovering Dundee, a post-war social history, Modern Dundee, a two-volume cultural history of the city, titled Dundee’s Literary Lives, as well as a quirky volume of 50 evocative 20th century photographs, The Wee Book of Dundee.
