Sarah has been writing and publishing for the last three years, and has published a total of eight novels (despite loads of procrastinating) plus a number of novellas and short stories. Sarah writes sci-fi, fantasy, and horror books for teens because she says "I can never stick to one genre. "
She lives in Sheffield with her partner, and loves to walk around Bole Hill in the sunshine. She says: "I can’t exactly moan about the ridiculous hills because I’m from Matlock, but I still manage to complain quite a lot."
Sarah also writes suspense stories under the pen name of Sarah Denzil. Her books include the UK and US Amazon no.1 bestseller Silent Child (chuffed for you Sarah!), Saving April, and the Broken Ones.
