Overview

Shemaron: A Beautiful Endeavor by Fiona Malkin

Having a moderately successful business and two grown up children, Fiona thought her life was fairly settled. She was unprepared for the impact that her husband's purchase of an old fishing boat would have. Shemaron: A Beautiful Endeavour is the story of her growing involvement on a practical and historical level whilst dealing with the inevitable frustrations of renovating an old boat. The turbulent and intimate interaction between fishermen and the sea is often considered alongside personal observations made from the deck of the ring net boat Shemaron. Poetical prose and historical interludes are woven into accounts of voyages undertaken whilst she and her husband have enjoyed guardianship of this historical boat.

About the Author

Fiona lives with her husband in Newcastle, England. Living close to both the northeastern coast and the Scottish Borders has provided unlimited access to a stimulating and fascinating countryside in which to explore the natural world. In seeking to view landscapes and seascapes in the context of their geological characteristics and historical connections, Fiona has found a rich inspiration for the composition of poetry and other small pieces she has written.

In June 2015 Fiona set up the Ring Net Heritage Trust as a way of promoting and protecting a valued part of the Scottish fishing heritage. The trust will also provide a platform from which to share an ongoing involvement with Shemaron. Any author proceeds from Shemaron: A Beautiful Endeavour will go directly to the Ring Net Heritage trust to provide funding towards the ongoing ring net project.
