Sara is an award-winning author of multi-genre fiction. She began writing in 2009, after giving up a career as a Chartered Accountant to raise her family. The age of digital publishing came along at just the right time, and she published her first novel, Head Over Heels, in 2011 with Amazon, where it soon hit the Kindle Top 100.

A holiday in Tuscany was the inspiration for Urban Venus, a historical novel, before returning to romantic comedy to write Stage Fright and then Hand On Heart, the long-awaited sequel to Head Over Heels. In 2020 she added to the Head Over Heels series, with A Head Over Heels Christmas.  She hopes to write a fourth instalment soon...

The Lost Boy was Sara's first foray into the supernatural, with the beautiful backdrop of a National Trust property close to her home.
