About the author (2011)

I've been writing for twenty years on and off, but it is only the last five I've been serious. So, I'm still in my apprenticeship. This website is to give all those interested a way to access my writing, read snippets and learn how to download to Kindle or purchase some of my work. I have published and unpublished works here, some still being written, some in the editing stage. Browse as you wish but be warned, I write both violence and erotica.I have also been accused of writing love stories. If love is half as painful as some of the stuff I write here, then maybe it ought to come with a health warning. There is love in these tales, I am an old romantic who thinks love makes the world go round. However, love generates passions which aren't always so physically pleasurable. My stories, some about redemption, some about saving the world from the ultimate evil, some about obsession, are fun, fast paced and pure urban fantasy - FOR ADULTS! A theme I've thought of in one is often carried into the next. I have a style, I have a subject I enjoy. If you like the same things then great. If not then good luck and thanks for visiting.Personally, I have been everything from a tree grower, to a book binder, a barmaid and cleaner. For the last few years I've been running an award winning full time martial arts company and taught three disciplines within my club. I hold three black belts and have a degree in Medieval History, which comes in handy if I ever need to use either an English or Japanese sword. I have achieved all this despite having once lived in a squat in an abandoned Victorian schoolhouse. My husband and I now live with three cats on the Somerset Levels, just down the road from Glastonbury, the centre for inspiration in everything esoteric and strange.Music is my inspiration and my love. Live music the one thing I will actually leave my house for voluntarily. My links page is full of the bands I think should be compulsory listening but apparently I'm in the minority! One thing I will say - any reference to a band is made with due respect and reverence.If you want to comment on my work then do get in touch: sarah@fictionwriter.co.uk
