Sandy Mulkeen - Transcription Service & Author
Dec 18th, 2018, 10:26am
 
Sandy Mulkeen has died near her home in Taurinya, France. She graduated with an MA in English Literature and History of Fine Art from Glasgow University and then worked in the publicity department of the BBC Transcription Service at Kensington House in Shepherd’s Bush. On leaving the BBC she started her own publicity and design business and after living for some years in rural Dorset with her husband and best friends, BBC TRU engineers Dave Mulkeen and Pete Freshney, she turned to writing under the pen name of Mairi Craw. “Beyond the Hedge” was the first of a series of novels inspired by her childhood in Scotland. The three friends, often referred to as “The Three Musketeers” moved to rural France with all their numerous pets and her second book, “Between Two Worlds” followed.  Both books are available on Kindle and as audio books. “Beyond the Hedge” was also adapted for radio and stage.
Sandy had found it hard to cope following the deaths of both Dave and Pete and following an accident earlier in the year, had withdrawn from her previous daily posts on Twitter and Facebook.
Sandy is missed by her many former colleagues, friends in France and those that followed her on social media, both as Sandy Mulkeen and Mairi Craw. Her funeral took place on 12 December in her adopted village in France.
