Welcome to the new web site of author Evelyn Hood.

A former journalist, Evelyn Hood is best known for family sagas mainly set in her home town of Paisley (Renfrewshire) and on the Clyde Coast, although she is also the author of 'Forward by Degrees', a history of the University of Paisley. The history was commissioned to mark the University's centenary as a place of further education and was published in April 1997.

Evelyn has also published six one-act stage plays, a Scottish pantomime, a children's musical and a number of short stories and articles. Unpublished but performed stage work includes a full length play, three pantomimes, six children's musicals, and a large number of monologues and sketches.

Her hobbies include reading and amateur drama, and she lives in West Kilbride, Ayrshire with her husband. They have two grown sons.

An adjudicator, lecturer and tutor on most aspects of writing, Evelyn's current novel, entitled 'A CERTAIN FREEDOM', is now available, published by Time Warner Books.

Prior's Ford Blog Wednesday, 05 October 2011


The fifth Prior's Ford book, Mystery in Prior's Ford, was published on September 29th, but I am now hearing from would-be readers that it has already gone out of print, and it's not known as yet when it will be reprinted.

If you want to buy the book, which now bears my own name, Evelyn Hood, please continue to order it in bookshops or online. The more demand for it, the sooner it will go into a further reprint.
