Sarah Barnard

Biography

I am a single Mother living, working and writing in Middle England. I've described this as a bit like Middle Earth in it's beauty but the trees don't walk. Born in 1969, I'm told I saw the moon landings, but being only four months old I can't remember! I try to live in as green a way as possible, growing some of my own crops, keeping my chickens for eggs and doing as much reducing, reusing and recycling as is possible. I'm a pisces and a rooster, depending which zodiac system you prefer and my favourite colours are green and purple.

I've been writing since a very good friend dared me to take part in the National Novel Writing Month challenge - 50,000 words in 30 days, and it is so intense it's unreal. That happened in November 2005 and The Portal Between is the end result. I've completed the same challenge every year since.

The Portal Series is available in print from all good bookshops both in your town and online.
