About Sarah

I have been telling stories for as long as I can remember – many of them born of frustration when I was stuck in a classroom longing to be rescued! I love anything romantic, whether it is a grand opera or a beautiful painting. It doesn't necessarily have to be happy, as long as it is inspiring.

I was born in Bristol and grew up on Barton Hill, an area of small terraced houses built in the nineteenth century between the mills and the railway. I think my love of adventure stories is due to the fact that I grew up with three older brothers and lived in a street full of boys! My love of history and the English language was fostered at grammar school, where I soon discovered the delights of Georgian and Regency fiction, first of all with the works of Jane Austen and then Georgette Heyer.

I left school at sixteen to work in companies as varied as stockbrokers, marine engineers, biscuit manufacturers and even a quarrying company, but I never lost my love of history, and when I wasn't reading and researching the Georgian and Regency period I was writing stories about it.

In 1989 I moved with my family to an isolated Pennine farmhouse in West Yorkshire, not far from Brontë country, where we expanded our brood to include a dog, two gerbils and a dozen chickens. As our family grew in size and needed more funding, I decided to put the writing on hold and return back to work full-time.

It was in March 2000 that everything changed. I stepped off a kerb and landed in hospital with one ankle broken and the other one badly sprained. I found myself laid up on the sofa for twelve weeks, this gave me the time I needed to finish a novel and I simply never looked back. I have now published more than twenty books, winning a coveted CataNetwork Reviewers Choice award in 2010 for The Earl’s Runaway Bride and the RNA's RoNA Rose Award two years in a row – in 2012 for The Dangerous Lord Darrington and in 2013 for Beneath The Major's Scars

My home now is an old farmhouse on the edge of the Pennines in West Yorkshire, where I am literally a stones throw from open moorland. I love going out for a walk to sort out the problems in my latest plot, or just to clear my head ready for another session of writing.
