"Finding Heather is a beautifully inspiring, and heartfelt tale of the healing powers of love, and the importance of family, and home."

“As sumptuous and lyrical as a travelogue… Ragsdale masterfully explores the characters’ emotions.” — Kirkus Reviews
Books With a Touch of Scotland
A proud Scots lass, I was born in Edinburgh and that strong connection to my homeland has never left me. Consequently, my novels are set in the stunning Highlands and islands of Scotland. I’ve tried to capture the essence of Scotland, the breathtaking scenery and the strength, humor and heart of the people. My books are emotionally charged novels about family, love, loss, hope and self discovery.
Thank You For Visiting
Originally from Edinburgh, I am a former professional ballet dancer and marketing executive. Having spent over two decades as a nomad, living in six countries across Europe and the Middle East, I’ve now settled near Washington DC with my beloved husband and dogs. I was educated in England and hold an MBA from the University of Leicester.
My first two novels, TUESDAY’S SOCKS and THE FATHER-DAUGHTER CLUB are both Amazon best sellers. THE FATHER-DAUGHTER CLUB also won the 2016 IPPY Bronze medal in the Best Regional Fiction – Europe category. FINDING HEATHER is my third novel which was released in October 2016. My fourth novel, A LIFE UNEXPECTED, also an Amazon best seller, won a 2018 IPPY Bronze medal in the Popular Fiction category.
