Sitting at a keyboard all day and penning fiction has always been Sarah’s dream career. But stints as an actress (she still holds her British Actor’s Equity card), a journalist, publisher, event manager and PR consultant got in the way.
That is, until she packed her bags, left the Big Smoke of Sydney and settled in NSW’s Southern Highlands where the country air wove its creative magic. She studied online at Curtis Brown Creative, undertook Advanced Writers Masterclass with Lynn Hightower at UCLA (USA) and was a nominee for 2017 James Kirkwood Prize in Creative Writing. Finally, those long-awaited novels began to take shape.
In 2019, she was shortlisted for the Grindstone International Novel Prize for her current work-in-progress, Postmark Guernsey.
Her debut novel, A Voice in the Night, a pyschological thriller set in New York, London and Sydney, will be published by Transit Lounge in June 2021.
