Sarah’s books combine her professional and personal experiences with a natural curiosity for what makes the human mind tick and a deep fascination for how the mind can become so iniquitous, then - what happens next?

Her Greatest Mistake, Sarah’s debut novel, reached 16 in the overall UK Kindle chart, achieving a best-seller flag within the specific genre. It also reached the top 10 in Australia and Canada. I Know You’re There is Sarah’s third novel, an evocative, twisted look behind the closed doors of a shared Victorian residence in the picturesque coastal town of St. Ives.

Sarah lives in a small coastal town in beautiful Cornwall with her husband, three children, German Shepherd and cat. Cornwall is her choice setting for all three current

Anything I may have been worrying over before, disappears. It’s like my own secret world and anything can happen. It’s the most perfect form of escapism.(less)

Or sometimes, I just sit down and write anything and it will encourage my imagination to kick in. Music, is also a great way of stirring emotions and provoking thought - I use this sometimes.

But mostly, I realise the worst thing I could do is, to worry about it, so I tend to go with it, knowing it will clear.(less)

Who I Am, A few words on...

A little something behind Who I Am and why I wrote it…..

I sometimes look in to her eyes

A borrowed glimpse of a charmed life

As through the windows to my world

There sits – only loneliness and tormented strife.

.

Still, something even more strange

At least this is how it seems

When others look in to my eyes

They only grasp a life of spirit and dreams.



Who I Am is a psychological thriller involving sensiti Read more of this blog post »

“Time isn’t always a healer; it can be an incubator too.”
Sarah Simpson, Her Greatest Mistake

“An invigorating shower of soft florals, all the time with a watchful eye on the door. Only panicking when the shampoo temporarily obscures my vision, rinsing it through as quickly as if my life depends on it. Not long later, I leave the house, double-checking the locks. Not bad, a transformation from home-comfort clothes to a tailored azure dress. Softly applied make-up, coral lips. Elegant shoes with a sharp distinguishing echo. Finally, my files, mobile and diary. All in less than thirty minutes. Trepidation has its perverse benefits.”
Sarah Simpson, Her Greatest Mistake

“My room leads directly from Reception, where old fosters new, modern, light and airy but still entirely intimate. The colours are cool yet warm, shades of white, pale blues and citrus-fruit seasonings. Natural oak shelving engulfs the walls; heavy with journals and books, some receding to my undergraduate and training days. Two hardbacks take precedence on the top shelf. One of these, an extremely worn leather-bound Complete Works of William Shakespeare. The other being The Meaning of Dreaming, my early allure to the workings of the human mind.”
Sarah Simpson, Her Greatest Mistake

“For every minute you are angry you lose sixty seconds of happiness.”
