Carmel Audsley


Carmel McMurdo Audsley is an Australian Journalist, Editor and Author who lives in Brisbane with her husband Iain. They both had Scottish fathers, share a mutual love of Scotland and have walked in the footsteps of their ancestors in the country that they love to visit. As a Newspaper Journalist and Magazine Editor, Carmel has written, and had published, thousands of news stories and feature articles and has now turned her research and writing skills to digging up the past and breathing life into the characters she finds. Her first historical fiction novel, Ours, Yours and Mines, about the mining families of Ayrshire Scotland, was published in 2012 and captured the hearts of readers as the story unfolded about the harsh living conditions in the mid-1800s and the sad loss of life. Far Across The Sea continued the story with a young man from Scotland travelling to the sunny shores of Australia. Carmel’s third book, Faeries, Farms and Folk, details the lives of farming folk in the south-west of Scotland who were uprooted from their ancestral homes at the time of the industrial revolution. The books are all based on Carmel’s family history. In Carmel's fourth novel, The Undertaker, set in Scotland in 1858, follows a young woman who takes over her father's undertaking business. When she suspects that her first client did not die of a heart attack, it sets off a search for a serial killer that takes her beneath the streets of Edinburgh. The sequel to The Undertaker is The Undertaker:Masquerade which sees the heroine Kate still running the undertaking business, but also desperate to become a doctor. She meets a mysterious person who she thinks can help her - but can he? Carmel now devotes all her writing and editing time to producing Scots News Magazine for ex-pat Scots in Australia, and researching and writing historical fiction.
