Gill Stewart was born in Lancashire and lived in Yorkshire and Cheshire until the age of 15, when her family moved to South Africa. At 21 she moved to France, and then tried Zimbabwe before finding the perfect country: Scotland.
She has had many jobs including au pair, cleaner, teacher and accountant, but her first love has always been writing. She has been a member of the RNA since the early 2000s and served on the committee from 2013 to 2019.
She is currently working on a Young Adult series ‘Galloway Girls’, set in southern Scotland. The first book, ‘Lily’s Just Fine’, came out in July 2019 and was shortlisted for the People’s Book Prize. The second book is ‘Gemma’s Not Sure’.
