Lindsey Stirling was born in Ayrshire and grew up in the Highlands of Scotland with her Mum and Dad, brother Iain, Skye the cat, and a dog called Spark. Her childhood was spent reading lots of books, climbing mountains, and exploring ruined castles.
She studied Archaeology and Celtic Studies at the University of Aberdeen and graduated with an MSc degree in Archaeology of the North in 2014. She now works as an archaeologist in the Highlands and regularly makes use of archaeology, Scottish and Scandinavian folklore, and the Bible to inspire her writing.
She still enjoys reading lots of books, climbing mountains, and exploring ruined castles, along with the new family dog Broc.
Her debut novel, Eagle’s Guard, was released in 2017.
