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 short fiction has been published in magazines including Mslexia and Litro and has been shortlisted for several prizes. Her debut crime novel, The Sanatorium, was pre-empted by UK publisher Transworld in a two-book deal and will be published in December 2020. Rights have been sold in the US (Pamela Dorman Books), Czech Republic (Euromedia), Greece (Psychogios), Japan (Kadokawa Shoten), Netherlands (Ambo Anthos), Poland (Prószynski Media), Russia (Eksmo), Slovakia (Ikar) and Spain (Atico de los libros).
