We would like to thank Lyndsey Croal, Anthea Middleton, Sam Canning and Gillian Bowman for their invaluable help in casting for this drama

Daughter of Fire and Water began as a character origin tale for Lyndsey's in-progress young-adult fantasy novel, though it morphed into something quite different by the end. She'd like to thank Julie Bertagna for prompting her to explore this back story, and Scottish Book Trust for their support over the past year. Inspiration also came from Scottish folklorist Donald Alexander Mackenzie's interpretation of the Cailleach's story.
