Sarah Vincent has two grown up children, and lives in the South Shropshire countryside with her husband and her Jack Russell terrier, Beryl. She writes in a converted coal shed at the back of the house.


Growing up in North London, her first proper job after a disastrous fling as an au pair in Rome was as an assistant at the London Library. She has written from childhood, and managed to juggle her fiction over the years with a variety of day jobs, including a care assistant, school dinner lady and museum tour guide.

Writing as Susan Davis, her short fiction has been published widely in literary magazines such as Staple, Chapman and Mslexia, also in anthologies such as Best New Horror, and broadcast on BBC Radio 4.

Her stories have won prizes and been short listed for the Asham Award. Orange Prize Winner, Linda Grant said of her short fiction: "This is a writer triumphantly in control of her material, her style and of her ideas."

2002 saw the publication of the first book of her Young Adult trilogy for Random House, 'The Henry-Game.’ All three books featured in The Ultimate Teen Book Guide 2006, and were described by author Katherine Roberts as "Wickedly Funny."

For the past ten years she has worked as an editor for two leading Literary Consultancies. She also teaches Creative Writing online, and gets a buzz out of helping new writers to achieve their goals.

Aside from writing, she loves world music, and visiting art galleries when she’s in town. Her greatest thrill though is going off-grid for a few days, and camping in remote places in her tiny caravan.


Sarah's new psychological thriller, 'The Testament of Vida Tremayne' is published by Three Hares Publishing.
