Sally Huband


Sally Huband is currently working on her debut book, Sea Bean, a work of non-fiction about Shetland, where Sally has lived since 2011. Sea Bean is due to be published by Windmill in spring 2022.


Sally’s background is in nature conservation and her PhD combined ecology and anthropology to research the connections between low-intensity agricultural practices and butterflies in Carpathian hay meadows.  Sally was the recipient of the Scottish Book Trust’s New Writers Award for narrative non-fiction in 2017. Her writing can be found in Earth Lines, Zoomorphic, The Island Review, Caught by the RiverShetland Life and Archipelago.
