Sarah was born in Manchester and grew up in the north of England. She studied at Oxford University and then worked for the BBC in London as a trainee producer. She left the BBC to qualify as a barrister and when her children were born she became a university lecturer in her specialist subject, Land Law and Trusts. On the birth of her fourth child, Sarah decided that writing novels might fit in better with family life. She has written three medieval mystery stories for Catnip Publishing: The Riddle of the Poisoned Monk, Tom Fletcher and the Angel of Death and Tom Fletcher and the Three Wise Men.
Sarah is very happy to take part in author visits for schools and colleges and really enjoys meeting young people, talking about books and reading from her own work.
