Meet the Author

JOHN BUCHAN (1875-1940) was a Scottish author, historian, journalist, diplomat and politician. He traveled widely, wrote prolifically and served as Governor General of Canada.

SARAH WIMPERIS began painting at a very early age as a result of family influences and an inability to spell. She studied fine art at Falmouth School of Art, exhibited with the Portal Gallery, then travelled the world, including China, Russia, Israel and Norway, painting all the way. She returned to Cornwall, raised a lot of children, painted murals for a while, then became a professional illustrator. Since 2008 she has exhibited regularly at the Beside the Wave Gallery in Falmouth, which she now manages.
