Scottish author Sara Sheridan discusses her writing career so far, her interest in history, and the research methods she employs when working on her novels, at this year's Edinburgh International Book Festival.
Sara Sheridan was born in Edinburgh, and attended an all girls school, which had wonderful English and History teachers. This started Sheridan's lifelong interest in the subjects, leading on to study English at Trinity College, Dublin. After working in Ireland for a bit, Sheridan returned to Scotland, and eventually became a writer, publishing several books, including her Mirabelle Bevan series, about a female detective who solves cases in the 50s.
