Sarah is a bestselling author of contemporary fantasy and magical realism. She writes the Crow Investigations series, a London-set urban fantasy featuring private investigator Lydia Crow.

The first book of the Unholy Island series, The Ward Witch, is set in the same world as the Crow books, but with new setting and characters.

She has also written ‘book club’ fiction with atmospheric settings and historical elements and non-fiction for authors (yes, she finds it hard to stick to one genre!).

Having always been a reader and a daydreamer, she now puts those skills to good use with a strict daily schedule of faffing, thinking, reading, napping and writing – as well as thanking her lucky stars for her good fortune.

Sarah lives in rural Scotland with her husband and extensive notebook collection.
