Anna Caig

The Spae-Wife

The Spae-Wife

Orkney under the Stuart witch-finder king. One woman struggles against dark forces.

Anna Caig tutors on the MA Journalism course at the University of Sheffield and trains creative people in communications and marketing by day. By night, she writes crime fiction and reviews books for the Sheffield Telegraph newspaper and on her blog, Murder Underground Broke the Camel’s Back. You can say hello at or on Twitter @AnnaCaig where, since starting her training business, she tries to tweet more about sensible, professional things and less about her love of ‘Murder, She Wrote’ and the guitarist Slash.
