Hester Grant studied modern history at Christ Church, Oxford, where she was awarded the JL Field Exhibition and the Keith Feiling History Prize. She subsequently trained and practised as a barrister.
Hester gave up her career at the Bar to bring up her three children, and to pursue her great loves of writing and 18th-century English history. From 2013-2015, she collaborated with her husband, the well-known QC and writer Thomas Grant, on his best-selling book, Jeremy Hutchinson’s Case Histories, published in 2015 by John Murray. They are now working on a follow-up: Court 1, The Old Bailey, which is being published (again by John Murray) in 2018.
