Sarah-Kate Lynch is quite a cranky journalist of several decades who prefers making things up to recording them accurately. This is not very good if you are a journalist, which may explain (a) the crankiness and (b) why she now writes novels.

She also writes two columns in the New Zealand Woman's Day, New Zealand's best-selling weekly magazine. One is about nothing and the other is about travel.

Sarah-Kate lives in a cliff top house on the wild west coast of New Zealand's North Island with a lovely dog called Ginger and a husband called Ted. Oh, hang on, no, that's not right. The dog is called Ted and the husband is Ginger.

Reading is a joy but sometimes writing feels like your innards have been scooped out like a Halloween pumpkin and you�re still scouring the insides for enough to make a decent soup.

Yesterday I was reading through the last couple of chapters of the second draft of my next book, Heavenly Hirani�s School of Laughing Yoga, when I was suddenly deeply possessed by the most appalling notion that it wa... Read more of this blog post »

I loved Atonement but otherwise I am not a dedicated Ian McEwan fan and have even flung the odd one across the room in disgust. I didn't have quite that reaction to this book but nor did I really get the point. On the plus side, it's short.
Sarah-Kate Lynch and 138 other people liked Sharon's review of The Children Act:
The Children Act by Ian McEwan
"I have to stop reading McEwan's books, because I never enjoy them. There's something clinical, removed, about the way he tells his stories - I don't get the sense that he likes human beings, and he is writing about them to display his proficiency..." Read more of this review »

Hm. Love Girls. Not so sure about this. Good on her for writing it - she is definitely a clever cookie with a smart turn of phrase - I'm just not sure I am any better off for having read it.

“If there’s one thing I have learned it’s that if you carry on as though nothing strange is happening, it usually stops being strange”
Sarah-Kate Lynch, On Top of Everything

“This is the thing no one prepares you for where disaster are concerned. There is no ominous black cloud, no spooky chill, no neon sign that flashes: Stop! Please! Go back to bed! There's something really really dreadful waiting to happen around the corner! I beg of you, do not continue!”
Sarah-Kate Lynch, On Top of Everything

“In my experience nobody gets to lead a totally charmed existence. Nobody escapes the pitfalls of being a human being. It’s what seperates us from the zebras. Or that’s my theory anyway”
Sarah-Kate Lynch, On Top of Everything
