Sarah McEvoy was born in Kendal, and wanted to be an astronaut when she grew up until she realised that would mean being more sporty than she was at all interested in being. She now lives in Yorkshire with two cats and a large number of books. She has a varied range of interests including website building, baroque music, translation and needlecrafts, and every now and then she seems to end up doing something a little out of the ordinary. In 2013 this will involve directing a production of Donizetti’s Lucia di Lammermoor for Opera Seria, Manchester. She never leaves the house without a hat, and, this being England, usually also an umbrella. If there is a real-life Mars colony in her lifetime, she would like to volunteer to live in it.
