I think I can honestly say that I wrote Danger on the Hill in the space of about ten or twelve days in total. I spent a day at the National Library in Edinburgh and then it just happened. Not much is known about the Wilson children and after Margaret's death the other two just disappear off the pages of history - but this story needed to be told. And those facts that we do know can't fail to touch our hearts. I found my own background of Psalm singing essential to understanding this young girl and her history. I've used that extensively throughout the book to give that necessary authenticity to the struggle of the Covenanter church of the 1600's.
