Product Description

Christine Cochrane was born in Torphins, Aberdeenshire, and is a graduate of St Andrews University. After a career in language teaching, she studied Creative Writing with the Open University and won 3rd prize in the 2014 Mslexia Women’s Short Story Competition with ‘Shifting Sands’. She writes in English and German and has been published in Germany by Edition Narrenflug. Christine lives in Cumbria, but is regularly drawn back to her native North East Scotland and the beaches and hills of the Western Isles.

‘An impressive sense of place, and language which is alive and supple.’
– Nicky Harlow


‘A fascinating new voice from Scotland.’
– Gabriele Haefs


‘My third winner was ‘Shifting sands’ by Christine Cochrane, which is set in South Uist and Benbecula, where wild weather and the sea govern the characters’ movements. This story has the dream-like intensity of myth. The title of this story really works, both literally and metaphorically.’
– Jane Rogers, Mslexia short story competition 2014
