Hello!
Barbara Henderson with her latest book

I’m Barbara and I write books (buy the books published by Cranachan HERE and The Reluctant Rebel and Scottish by Inclination here) for young people – and I visit schools for workshops and author events. Over the pandemic, I haven’t been able to get out much to meet readers in person, but this is changing and many schools and festivals are opening their doors once again – hooray! I hope you are all keeping well.Β 

My new book is called The Reluctant Rebel and is out now from Luath Press.

I am the author of six other books for 8-12-year-olds, all published by Cranachan:

You can click through to the pages on individual books, look at my news section, follow my blog or browse to find out about the things which inspire my writing, check information about visits and upcoming events and so on. I’m always in the process of adding information and updating various sections, so keep checking back for the latest!

By the way, I love connecting with readers and with other writers, so please leave comments on my blog and follow me on Facebook, Instagram or Twitter by clicking on the icons – I’d love to hear from you!

Go on – take a look around!

The Latest:
I’ve won an actual AWARD for The Siege of Caerlaverock! The best bit is that The Chessmen Thief has also been shortlisted for the same award for 2022!

The Siege of Caerlaverock WON its category – I am so excited!

Also, you may have seen me pop up on the BBC where I was speaking about my non-fiction book for adults, Scottish by Inclination. Order by clicking here if you would like to find out more about my own life.
