“Maisie had never owned a book and couldn’t imagine rereading anything when time was so short and the libraries so full.”
Sarah-Jane Stratford, Radio Girls

“Pound notes. Her previous pay packets had been so small she never received paper, only coins. Which she liked. Coins had heft and history. Their value was irrefutable. She liked the way they jingled in her purse. That was the song of solvency. The cheerful assurance that there would be food and comfort through the day. It was better than any hymn.”
Sarah-Jane Stratford, Radio Girls

“She perched on the club chair he indicated. The leather was probably repelled by her cheap wool dress.”
Sarah-Jane Stratford, Radio Girls

Topics Mentioning This Author

“Maisie was next, and stepped up to vote. She wondered how many hands had trembled already today, holding their pencils over the ballots, with all the little boxes. Did most women take to their new, belated right with aplomb, or did they take their time, marveling over the beauty of it all, the silent speech that would be heard?
Or did they think, like she did, that there was a long queue behind her and she had to get to work.
She wrote a thick X, drew over it twice, and dropped the paper in the ballot box.
That’s how you spell a shout. With an X.”
Sarah-Jane Stratford, Radio Girls

Rique :·) Hi Sarah! I'm so happy because you accepted my request to being friends in goodreads! I'm really excited because you're like one of my favorites authors and you really inspired me with the midnight guard! I really love your work and I hope I could read more of your work soon! You're really great.

Milton Esitubi Mary Anita And The Second Liberation In Kenya Consider this entertainment full of African passion and flavour, culture, social life and politics.


∞ M.A. Devereux ∞ I plan to set my next play, which will be called "The Amdramada Galaxy" and will be about amateur dramatics, in the Forest of Garden in Stratford-upon-Maiden, east London. If a character called Ms.S-J Stratford desires an incidental part in the play, she is welcome to it!


∞ M.A. Devereux ∞ Cool!


Sarah-Jane Hi Matthew,
I was only there once - saw an okay RSC production of 'As You Like It.' There's been some stuff lately I'd give so, SO much to see! Must get back over there and stay, for the sake of my theatre-loving soul. :-)


∞ M.A. Devereux ∞ Hi Sarah-Jane! Did you get to spend much time in Stratford-upon-Avon when you were in the UK?

Ed Rambeau Thanks for accepting my friend request, Sarah-Jane. It's greatly appreciated. If you love a good mystery, and you have either a Kindle, Nook or iBooks, I encourage you to try a sample of my first novel. It's called FORBIDDEN STEPS and it's getting raves and 5 stars across the board. Check out what folks are saying by clicking on the link below, then scroll downward.
