Yvonne Robertson (nee Laurenson) was born in Holm in the Orkney Islands, off the north coast of Scotland but grew up in Lesmahagow, Lanarkshire. Her father hailed from The Shetland Islands, the most northerly part of Scotland and actually closer to Norway than to the Scottish mainland. Her mother came from the beautiful county of Argyll on the west coast of Scotland. She has four brothers and one sister. At twenty one she married Neil Robertson and a few years later they had two sons. They spent the majority of their married life in Kirriemuir, Angus and a few years in the beautiful village of Glamis, home of the late Queen Mother. In 2007 they made the momentous decision to relocate to USA. They packed up and moved 4000 miles to Atlanta, GA where they still live today. The boys are grown now, both graduated from college and work in IT with the youngest recently married. Writing has always been a passion and in her younger years had poems and short stories published in magazines and won a writing competition in college. .
