603808_529403977097951_1467424223_nMy name is Uuganaa. I was born and grew up in Mongolia. I now live in Scotland with my husband and children. After I lost my son Billy I realised life was too short and I had to do the things I wanted to do. I wrote a non-fiction book on my childhood in Mongolia and life in Britain. The title of the book is Mongol and in March it won the Janetta Bowie Chalice Non-Fiction Book Award from the Scottish Association of Writers.

I write about life through Mongolian and Scottish eyes.

  1. Hi Uuganaa,

    This is wonderful, I love the spirituality of it all. Very. very well done! I also love that it involves all aspects of your life past and present, and your wonderful family – and the fact that I can learn so much about mongolia too – your writing is very atmospheric.

    It was very nice to read your blog, specially the letters to Billy. I also liked your writings about Mongolia. Your words are very moving. Keep writing and posting. I live in Dundee and currently on my maternity leave looking after my 5 months old baby girl Freyja. I would love to keep in touch.
