About Alana
Having grown up in Edinburgh and the Lothians, Alana completed her MA in English Literature and History followed by a MScR in Fantasy Literature at the University of Edinburgh. Now an English teacher in secondary school, Alana is passionate about local and national history, literature, cuisine and a wee dram of uisge-beatha (otherwise known as whisky, without an ‘e’). Having been trained at the Scotch Whisky Experience, Alana loves nothing more than to share stories and pass the time of day over a dram or two and can more often than not be spotted as the person with her nose in a book.
