Writer, coach,


I’m Sarah, a British writer living in France.

I’d like to share my writing journey with you or help you on your way with your own creations.

My debut novel The Shadows We Cast won the Spread The Word/Bookouture Prize and supports Rape Crisis England and Wales. My short stories have been published in various places, including Mslexia and The Bristol Short Story Prize, and they amplify marginalised voices and issues.

My Wednesday Scribbles workshops give writers and creatives a burst of inspiration, while my Writing Workshops are an opportunity to focus on more specific stuff from structure to style. I’ve got over a decade of experience helping others find their unique voices.
