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 thriller, The Sanatorium, was pre-empted by Transworld in a two-book deal and published in February 2021. 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 UK edition entered the Sunday Times chart at No. 3 four days after publication.
