Shona (S.G.) MacLean was born in Inverness and brought up in the Scottish Highlands. She is the niece of adventure novelist Alistair MacLean. She obtained an MA and PH.D. in History from Aberdeen University. She began to write fiction while bringing up her four children (and Labrador) on the Banffshire coast. She has now returned to live in the Highlands, where her husband is a head teacher. 'The Redemption of Alexander Seaton' was short-listed for both the Saltire first book award and the CWA Historical Dagger; 'The Seeker' was winner of the 2015 Historical Dagger.
