Sarah Bourne was born and brought up in England, but has also lived in Japan and the USA. After travelling extensively in Europe, Asia, and South East Asia she settled in Sydney, Australia. She is a counsellor and finds people and their behaviour endlessly fascinating. She also teaches yoga and volunteers at a hospice writing biographies for people with a life limiting illness.
Winner of the 2017 Hunter Writer’s Centre prize for her short story entitled "The Sounds Of You", submitted to their Grieve Anthology. Karen Crofts, Writer, teacher of Creative Writing and Director of the centre, said, "Absolutely loved your piece. I will use it in future to demonstrate brilliant writing other than with the sense of ‘sight’. It was such a personal story but also so universal.”
Sarah is delighted to have recently signed a multi-book contract with Bloodhound Books in the UK. Her first novel, The Train, will be published in April 2021.
