Bio:  Murdo Morrison is an American writer of Scottish heritage. Born in Glasgow, Scotland, his early years were spent in a Scotstoun tenement. The author’s family has many links to shipyards, shipbuilding and the Merchant Navy, a background that he drew upon for his first novel Roses of Winter.
Murdo attended Allan Glen’s School and the University of Glasgow before moving to the US in 1973, where he completed degrees in Geography at Central Connecticut State College and Clark University. He lives in New Jersey with his wife and family.

About the story:

Roses of Winter, the author’s novel set in World War II Glasgow, left the Burns and McIntyre families hoping for a better future for themselves and a new generation born free of the shadow of war. They don’t realize that they face a world about to change in unimaginable ways.

Spanning over six decades, The Taste of Dust tells the story of that new generation through the eyes of Andrew McIntyre. Born into the world of tenements and housing schemes in working class Glasgow, Andrew hopes for a better future. To find it he must leave his troubled family and the city of his birth.
