I write ghost stories, gothic fiction and creepy dark tales. Stoires that send shivers down the spine and leave the reader with the need to keep the lights on is my sort of fiction.
I love to read dark stuff too, some of my favourite authors are Sarah Waters, Susan Hill and Michelle Paver.
My debut novel, Haverscroft, a ghost story and domestic noir, is set in East Anglia and published by Salt Publishing.
My short story, Sub-Zero, is publsihed in the October edition of The Norfolk Magazine 2019. I was shortlisted for The First 500 Words of a Novel Competition in 2018 and my extract is published in the anthology, Monsters.
I won the Retreat West Crime Writers Competition and was runner up in the Brixton Bookjam First Chapter Competition.

Haverscroft by S.A. Harris
"A taut, tense read, with enough bumps and noises in the dark to keep me on the edge of my seat. Several threads merge into one, devastating finale."

Haverscroft by S.A. Harris
"The first thing I need to say is that I adored this book. I do have some reservations but they are just my own opinions.

I'm not going to pretend this is the greatest piece of literature ever written. Or the best ghost story though it kept me reading " Read more of this review »
