About

 

Born in Airdrie, Scotland, writer, actress and children’s campaigner Sandra Brown was educated at Coatbridge High School, Hamilton College of Education and the Open University. She holds a Masters in Education and has more than 30 years experience of teaching, training, and lecturing.
 
She established the Moira Anderson Foundation in 2000, a charity tackling the global issue of child sexual abuse with an emphasis on : awareness raising, prevention , and healing for those affected.
Based in her birthplace, the agency has supported thousands since its launch. The website is :
Sandra was voted Scotswoman of the Year in 2005. Her first book “Where There is Evil” has been translated into many languages, and was a top 10 bestseller in 2006, when she was awarded an OBE for services to child protection. It traces the story of Moira Anderson, who disappeared age 11, from Sandra’s neighbourhood, and describes the author’s growing conviction of her own father’s involvement in child abduction and murder; it is Scotland’s longest unsolved cold case.
 
She has written a play adapted from her book called “One of Our Ain”, and performed it to acclaim, in London’s Soho Theatre, New York’s PS 122, and the Lowry in Manchester, as well as at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe, and on tour in Scotland and in Eire.
 
She is currently delivering performances of her play in Scottish secondary schools as part of a “Stay Safe” campaign designed by the charity to protect children and young adults from grooming by sexual predators. Sandra is also writing a sequel to her first book, entitled “No Secret Better Kept.”

WHERE THERE IS EVIL
2006
Pan
Sandra Brown was eight when her friend and neighbour, twelve-year-old Moira Anderson, disappeared from the small town of Coatbridge near Glasgow in 1957. Moira has never been seen since. Twenty-seven years later, at a family funeral, Sandra's estranged father confessed to her that he had been involved in the girl's disappearance. Appalled and fascinated by his curious half confession, Sandra began to delve into the case and in so doing discovered that her father was an acknowledged child molester whose activities were known not just to everyone in Coatbridge but also to the police.
