Sarah grew up on an island off the coast of Maine. She spent most of her childhood in costume, directing her younger siblings in lavish living room productions.
After stealing the show as The Littlest Christmas Tree in The
Snow Queen Ballet, Sarah hung up her dancing shoes in pursuit
her one true love: writing.
Sarah earned her BA in Creative Writing and History from Skidmore College in New York. After teaching dance and drama for a year, Sarah moved to England where she received an MA in Writing for Children from the University of Winchester. Her first book, Dreamer Ballerina is set in small town America at the start of the 1960s. Casey is desperate to join the New York Ballet, but the odds are stacked against her. It was published in the UK in 2011. It is published in the US under the title, Someday Dancer.
Sarah currently lives and writes in Hampshire.
