About Mirabelle

I was born in Birmingham in 1947. We moved to Bramhall, Cheshire (a few miles south of Manchester) when I was four, where my father took up the post of Headmaster of Moseley Hall Grammar School for Boys – a school that he led to considerable academic success, and for which he developed a large number of outside activities. From the age of ten years I studied at Manchester High School for Girls.

I left home when I was nineteen to work in agriculture before studying agriculture at Reading University.

I moved to Scotland in 1970 to work for Edinburgh University and then for the Agricultural Research Council.

I was married in 1973 to Robert (Bob) Maslin by Bishop Neil Russell in Rosslyn Chapel.

From 1975 to 1983 I was a full time mother as our three children were born during that period. After that I worked on project about cot death for the Royal Hospital for Sick Children in Edinburgh and also began to counsel. I started my own counselling business in 1990.

Music has been in my life since birth as my mother played the piano very well. I too learned to play the piano and have helped out for many years as an accompanist - particularly for children's songs, but also for eurythmy classes at the Rudolph Steiner School in Edinburgh. Using various instruments I have taught music to many local children, and my husband and I enjoy making music with friends.

I enjoy producing organically grown fruit, vegetables and herbs.
