Sarah writes dark, contemporary, reverse harem, erotic and paranormal romances. She adores all forms of steamy romance and can always be found with a book or ten on her Kindle. She loves anti-heroes, alpha males and flawed characters with a little bit of darkness lurking within. Her writing buddies nicknamed her 'The Queen of Steam' for her pulse racing sex scenes which will leave you a little hot under the collar.

Born and raised in Sussex, UK near the Ashdown Forest where she grew up climbing trees and building Lego towns with her younger brother. Sarah fell in love with novels when she was a teenager reading her aunt's historical regency romances. She has always loved the supernatural and exploring the darker side of romance and fantasy n

I found I got really inspired in the bath, so I learnt to write on my phone without dropping it (not an easy feat when you're as clumsy as me). I write on my lunch break. I write late into the night sometimes. I just make time even when I don't have any. Having a supportive husband who doesn't complain when I'm in the zone also helps.
I do struggle to maintain a balance. I've burnt myself out several times, but I'm learning how to manage that better. And it's not all plain sailing - I get writers block just like everyone else, but I don't let it stop me in my tracks.
I'm not a planner, so I don't spend time working out what I'm going to do. I just write. I think that's part of my secret to getting the words out because I'm excited to find out what happens next. It's like writing as if you're the reader almost.(less)

I've had a fascination with the supernatural, particularly vampires since I was a teenager. So the combination seemed sort of perfect for me. Even supernaturals need love.
There's all the same world building you'd write for a fantasy novel which gives you a backdrop, but the focus is on the couple and their journey to their happy ever after.
My first series can be read as standalones, but I feel like the exprience is enriched if you really them in order. Each book builds the world further. It allowed me to explore each different community (i.e. vampires, witches) and I don't have to spend as long in each book establishing the world.(less)

Real Talk... I'm a nerd!

I’m not one for getting super personal. Okay, maybe on occasion I do, but it’s mainly about my writing and not my personal life. But I’ve got to admit something… I’m a socially awkward, anxiety ridden nerd. Like on an epic level. If you met me in real life, you’d see it. I hate talking to new people or making small talk. I guess that’s my inner introvert coming out.

It’s hard to explain to people s Read more of this blog post »

“This isn't a story of love, sunshine and roses. This is a story of betrayal, murder, lust and deceit.”
Sarah Bailey, Betrayal

“You have no idea what kind of man I am or what I’m capable of.” He leant closer until his nose was almost brushing against mine. “Unless you wish to wake the beast, I suggest you keep your smart remarks and questions to yourself. I’ll take pleasure in punishing you if you keep pushing me.” His eyes lowered to my mouth. “I can think of many ways to punish that smart mouth of yours. Many, many ways, sweetheart. Don’t think I won’t follow through. I don’t care who your father is nor am I scared of what he’ll do when he finds out I have his little princess.”
