Sarah grew up in the UK, on the Sussex coast, and she started writing when she was around five years old. For a long time she had no idea that real-life authors wrote books as a job, so she found herself working in many different jobs: She’s been a jewellery shop manager, a waitress, a care assistant, a bookseller, a nurse, a barista, an insurance claims technician, and a midwife. But in her spare time, she never stopped writing.
In 2013 she decided the time had come to take her writing more seriously. The decision to attend Bath Spa University for the MA in Creative Writing for Young People was the best of her life. Through this course, she made amazing writer friends, worked with incredible tutors, and met the agent who now represents her work, Jodie Hodges at United Agents.
Life has been a rollercoaster since finishing her masters in 2014. Her first novel for children will be published by Egmont Children’s Books in April 2017.
The book is the first in a trilogy for 8-12s, and it’s called THE HUNTRESS: SEA.
