Born in England, but living in Australia, the author has been writing for ten years.
"The Unfortunate Isles" is the fourth book by M.C. Muir in the successful "Under Admiralty Orders" series. Inspiration for these stories comes from a love of the sea and tall ships.
Muir's other works include four historical novels set in Yorkshire and various shorter publications including some for younger readers published under the by-line Margaret Muir.
