Elizabeth McKay is from Dalry in Ayrshire, Scotland. She has had around 300 stories and articles published. She works part time at a day-centre for adults with learning disabilities. Having seven nieces and nephews (and now great nieces and nephews) has provided her with the perfect excuse to read lots of children’s books. Her picture books Wee Granny’s Magic Bag and Wee Granny and the Ceilidh feature a Scottish Mary Poppins style character with a very surprising tartan bag!
