A former Brechin High School pupil has helped put a very unique Scottish twist on world history with a new book.
Norman Ferguson became interested in writing during his time a Brechin High School, where he helped produce the school magazine.
A member of the 2365 Brechin Squadron of the ATC, Norman also developed a great interest in aviation.
His latest offering, entitled ‘If History was Scottish’ provides a hilarious Scottish prospect on historical events - including that goal in the 1966 world cup.
The book is Norman’s sixth published book, with previously written titles including ‘The Glasgow Book of Days’, ‘Chronologia, History by the Minute’ and ‘The Little Book of Aviation’.
Previous works of Norman’s have been non-fiction, but with previous comedy writing experience he decided to write books with a more light-hearted approach.
According to the author information in his book, Norman has had his historical writings used by Scottish Government, when he devised a website on Scottish history for them.
With a background in writing, which includes producing comedy scripts for radio and television, it’s no surprise that Norman has more books in the works, with two further publications set for release next year.
Norman, now living in Edinburgh where he works as a web designer, studied Scottish history, politics and English at Glasgow University.
