Native New Yorker Donna Freed was placed for adoption through the now-notorious Louise Wise Jewish adoption agency (featured in the film Three Identical Strangers), and after her adoptive mother passed away, she went searching for her origins. What she discovered was a jaw-dropping crime that landed her birth parents at the centre of one of the biggest police investigations of the 1960’s. Her memoir, Duplicity, My Mothers' Secrets was called “the most amazing and remarkable story” by The Today Show, and “a family scandal straight out of a Hollywood film noir” by The Spectator.

Cromarty-based writer Nicola White has published numerous short stories and personal essays together with three acclaimed crime novels set in Dublin, for which she has variously won the Dundee International Book Prize, been shortlisted for the McIlvanney Prize and chosen as Crime Fiction of the Year by the Irish Times and the Daily Express. She is currently working on a memoir of her childhood in New York in the 1960s, for which she has received major support from Creative Scotland.
