About this author

Brendan Gisby was born in Edinburgh, Scotland, halfway through the 20th century, and was brought up just along the road in South Queensferry (the Ferry) in the shadow of the world-famous Forth Bridge. He and his long-suffering wife and muse, Alison, presently live in splendid isolation in the wilds of Strathearn in Scotland.

Retiring from a business career in 2007, Brendan has devoted himself to writing. To date, he has published three novels, three biographies and several short story collections.

Brendan is also the founder of McStorytellers, a website which showcases the work of Scottish-connected short story writers.


Brendan Gisby hasn't written any blog posts yet.

The Island of Whispers by Brendan Gisby
"Actually really enjoyed the story. Wasn't sure what I was in for, narrated by rats. It felt just like human life in a controlled and dominated society, with physically descriptive names. Rooting for the underdog came quickly for me. "
