More About the Author

McDroll lives in Argyll, Scotland which is easily one of the most beautiful places in the world, steeped in history from prehistoric standing stones to Celtic crosses or castles and countless lochs and glens.

She sits at night, laptop on knees and writes about murders...well, what else would she do?

5.0 out of 5 stars Short & Sweet 6 Feb. 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Scot's author McDroll has put this collection of her crime/noir short stories together in one place, and what a place. I am a great fan of the short story and this collection reminds me of the Hitchcock collections I enjoyed as a teenager. Suggestive more than explicit, the stories lead you down a dark alley with a way out in sight, only to push you into an open manhole just when you think you're safe. I find that short stories can often show the deficiencies in an author, but McDroll keeps things tight and taut.
Well worth a few of your hard earned pennies.

5.0 out of 5 stars Small Dramas of the Heart 29 Dec. 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Another wonderful collection of cooked-rare, slice-of-life tales from McDroll. These raw fragments of ordinary folks misadventures and life-crisis are mixed with downbeat humour and often finish with an unforseen smack in the mouth leaving you probing with your tongue at the imagined gaps between your teeth. These stories also give the reader an uncomfortable reminder of the painfully bleak areas that exist in our own domestic lives. The blighted, dark patches we paint over and pretend to ourselves all is well.

By all means, take the time to prepare for an afternoon's reading in the company of McDroll. Make yourself a cup of tea, rattle some Kit-Kats onto a plate and then flop into your favourite armchair. But...... just don't get too comfortable.

5.0 out of 5 stars Into Touch 8 Feb. 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
When I read Kick It Together, I was taken aback.

There's A Pot Of Christmas soup, all warm and cosy. Not only did I enjoy its telling, but I learned a neat trick with Foxes Glacier Mints that means I'll be able to put icicles on future Christmas cakes. It was really gentle and I got completely involved in ideas for next years dinner. 'Kick It' - I wondered about the title for such gently skilled story-telling. And then came the twist. The sting in the tale. 'Kick It' finally made sense.

Gemma Dixon, a woman working her way through the nettles of police-rankings, is a great character. The opener gives a hint and she appears in the remaining stories (bar one) where we get to know a little more about her style and her strength each time.

In between the Dixon tales we have a story of a disillusioned Support For Learning teacher. It's the job I do. Reading about it not only reflected many of my own fears, it also highlighted perfectly the difficulties of the job in a way that is far-too-rarely mentioned. And boy does this one wear steel toe caps.

Dixon is the kind of lady who'll be in a novel some day, you just watch - or at least I hope that's the case; she certainly deserves to have a longer work of her very own.


This is a wonderful collection and I'm off to take another kicking in the very near future.
