Shona Main grew up in the Shetlands and at 17 moved to Dundee to train as a magazine journalist with DC Thomson & Co Ltd. After studying law, she then had a misguided and rather lacklustre foray into politics before returning to writing at the turn of the century. She writes mainly about Italy, Scotland and politics. With her partner, Nick Bruno, who is also a Footprint author, they split their time between Scotland and Italy, eating and drinking too much.
