Caroline Clough - Author

Caroline Clough was born and raised in Yorkshire but has lived in Scotland for 30 years. She lives with her husband, two children, and a menagerie of pets, in rural Aberdeenshire outside Turrif.

Her first novel for children, Red Fever, won the Kelpies Prize 2010. Caroline came very close to not entering the prize at all. She discovered an advert for the prize in a writing magazine just ten days before the deadline in February. Regretfully Caroline threw out the magazine and spent a sleepless night thinking about what she could have written.

“In the morning I became convinced that I could write 40,000 words in ten days!” says Caroline. “This sounds like sheer madness now — I’m not sure where I got the confidence to do it, but as soon as I had finished my chores I came in and started.”
