Gina Cowan lives in Lanarkshire Scotland and has three grown-up children and four grandchildren. She was born and brought up in Glasgow and this book is about her memories of that time. She was known then as Ena and was the youngest of three children.
When her own family became more independent she graduated as a mature student and taught for twenty years as a primary school teacher. On retiring she pursued her interest in local history and, in time, became President of the Monklands Heritage Society. She helped to initiate an annual magazine for the Society. This has been in operation for fifteen years and she has been its editor for the last six years. She has had many articles published and does a monthly book review for another magazine.
Last year she became a member of the Learning in Later Life student association at Strathclyde University and took classes in ‘Creative Writing’, ‘Communicating Online’ and ‘Web Design’. She was then able to design a web site for the society. She has experience of public speaking and has an interest in genealogy and tracing her family tree. She enjoys going on bus tours both in the UK and in Europe and writes up these adventures, illustrating them with photographs. She stays active by attending Keep Fit classes twice a week. She is co-author of a published book on church history and is now involved in writing a humorous book on her experiences as a teacher.
