Authors > Neil Broadfoot
Before turning his hand to fiction, Neil Broadfoot worked as a journalist for 15 years – an experience that greatly influenced his high-octane thrillers Falling Fast, The Storm and All the Devils, all of which feature crime reporter Doug McGregor. Falling Fast was an instant success, shortlisted for the prestigious Deanston Scottish Crime Book of the Year Award and the Dundee International Book Prize. Its follow-up, The Storm, garnered praise from critics, crime fiction authors and readers alike, and has established Neil as one of the heavyweight writers on the (in)famous Tartan Noir scene.

Featured Saraband author
Jim Crumley has written more than thirty books, mostly on the wildlife and wild landscape of his native Scotland. The Nature of Autumn was longlisted for the Wainwright Golden Beer Book Prize 2017 and shortlisted for the Richard Jefferies Society and White Horse Bookshop Literary Prize 2017. The follow-up to that book is the stunning The Nature of Winter. The third in the series, The Nature of Spring, will be published in April 2019.
The Eagle’s Way was shortlisted for a prestigious Saltire Society award, and his Encounters in the Wild series – which sees Jim get up close and personal with Britain’s favourite animals – has found him many new readers. He has also recently written about the return of the beaver to the UK’s wetlands in Nature’s Architect (Saraband, 2015).
Jim is a widely published journalist and has a monthly column in The Scots Magazine, as well as being a poet and occasional broadcaster on both radio and television.
