Join Live Life Aberdeenshire as one of their librarians speaks to S.G. (Shona) MacLean about her career as a writer and her very popular Alexander Seaton series set in the North East of Scotland in the 1620s and 30s, and the Damian Seeker historical crime series set mainly in Oliver Cromwell's London.
Shona was born and brought up in the Scottish Highlands and studied history at Aberdeen University, and has a PhD in 17th Century Scottish History. Married to a schoolteacher, she started writing fiction while living on the Banffshire coast and bringing up her four children.
She has twice won the CWA Historical Dagger, and the Bear Pit, the 4th novel in the Damian Seeker series, is shortlisted for both the 2020 Historical Dagger and the Blairgowrie Bookmark Festival’s inaugural Book of the Year award. Now returned to her native Highlands, she has begun work on a new series set around 18th century Inverness. She is the niece of the late thriller writer, Alistair MacLean.
