Owen Magruder is the nom de plume of a retired college professor. He has authored three professional books and a small volume of remembrances of the American Civil War. In addition, he and his wife have co-authored a brief biography of a little known abolitionist from upstate New York for the National Abolition Hall of Fame.  From 1989 to 2005, the couple ran a small publishing house that specialized in original letters and journals from the American Civil War.  Magruder’s ancestral home is in the Scottish highlands, hence the Scottish link to his mystery novels. The Feud at Glencoe and Other Adventures is the third of the John and Mary Braemhor Mysteries.  Owen Magruder resides in upstate New York.
