Sarah Pearse

Sarah grew up by the beach in South Devon and has always loved to read and write. She studied English Literature and Creative Writing at the University of Warwick and then completed a Postgraduate Diploma in Broadcast Journalism at the University of Falmouth. After working in London, she moved to Switzerland for several years, developing a love for the mountains, before returning to the UK to work in PR for a multinational company. She eventually made the move back to Devon and has been writing furiously ever since. Her debut thriller, The Sanatorium, was published by Transworld in February 2021, entering the Sunday Times chart at No. 3 four days after publication.  The US edition (Pamela Dorman Books) was a Reese Witherspoon Book Club pick, and entered the New York Times bestseller list at No. 5 a week after its release. The sequel, The Retreat, will be published in 2022.
