Sally Magnusson

Her bestselling memoir about her mother, Where Memories Go: Why Dementia Changes Everything, has been credited with improving knowledge and understanding of this widespread brain condition. Out of that experience she founded Playlist for Life in 2013, a charity that encourages access to personalised music on iPods for people with dementia to help them reconnect with their memories and their loved ones.

Her previous books include The Flying Scotsman, Family Life, Dreaming of Iceland, Life of Pee and the Horace the Haggis series of children's books. Her first adult novel will be published next year.


Absolute pleasure to work with @bookmarkblair today. Fabulous festival, amazing line up, dedicated volunteers & going from strength to strength.
