Claire-Marie Watson
Claire-Marie Watson was born and educated in Dundee but has spent most of her adult life in London, with spells in Canada and Kenya.

She worked for many years as PA to her husband, an architect, and returned to the city after spending several years travelling in Europe. The Curewife is her first novel.

The Curewife – In the reign of Charles I, Grissel Jaffray, The Curewife, arrived in Dundee as a new bride.

This compelling story, based on the very few known facts about her life, graphically depicts seventeenth-century Dundee: a time of war, plague, political turmoil, and fanatical witch-hunts.
