Sarah Surgey is Yorkshire born, London bred and Bath-based (having also detoured to France for a year). She lives in the South West of England with her husband Mark and four daughters, which evidently means she fits her writing in around a very hectic household! As a pre-school teacher, Sarah can often be found in the book corner reading to the children and sharing her passion for children’s literature. After writing for various magazines over the years, mainly in relation to Nordic culture, Sarah couldn’t deny the feeling for any longer, to sit down and put all the children’s stories she constantly had whizzing around inside her head from pen to paper… she actually still prefers that method to the digital age, another story!
With a strong passion to collaborate with other female talents, Sarah has managed to evolve her first children’s book ‘The Heavy Bag’ into different languages, making it available in other countries from independent bookstores. This is another issue that she is passionate about, independent bookstores! The smell of a bookstore and the feel of the pages whilst shopping small and supporting local businesses.
Welcome to the wondrous world of children’s literature through my eyes and come and say hello!
