Sara Sheridan's headshot

Mostly I am a big swot. Writing is my dream job because I get to hang out in libraries, read a lot, tell stories and play around with words. I have been fascinated by stories since I was a child in Edinburgh and I always say that my imagination is my most important muscle. I am absolutely obsessed with female history and all of my work relates in some way to memorialising the lives of women from the past. (Photo credit: Bethany Grace)
