Steve Blamires was born in the West of Scotland where the Celtic culture and the Gaelic language are both still strong. He now lives in New York State but prior to emigrating to the States he lived on the Isle of Arran, Scotland, a place considered by the ancient Gaelic Celts as the mystical Otherworld. He has taken a passionate interest in his indigenous Celtic culture since his early teens. Steve has published several books to much critical acclaim on Celtic mythology and belief. His most recent book is a biography of the Scottish writer William Sharp (1855-1905) who also wrote under the name Fiona Macleod. He has made numerous radio and TV appearances on both sides of the Atlantic, gives regular presentations and workshops throughout the US and UK on all aspects of Celtic culture and tradition. When he is not enjoying his home in the Hudson Valley he travels the world as a historian, presenter and tour-guide on National Geographic expedition ships.
He and his wife Jennifer run The Wee Tour Company - a tour company that designs and leads unique, tailor-made tours of Scotland for small groups with special interests, such as mythology, Celtic culture, photography, wool and yarn, whisky etc.
