Growing up in England gave Sadler a different perspective on life in America, but he assimilated quickly. He attended college in Big Sandy, TX, as a journalism major, in 1975 and then spent eighteen years in Oklahoma City writing for the OKC Sports Fan Forum, and then occasionally free-lancing articles for newspapers in Oklahoma and Arizona.
Sadler fed his yen to be a writer while working primarily in the debt-collection field. After a divorce he ended up on a mind-clearing hike on the Appalachian Trail which spawned the idea for “Blood on His Hands”, a novel that follows an Oklahoma rough-neck on a wild chase leading to a face-off on the Appalachian Trail in Georgia.
Sadler now resides in Tucson, AZ where he is currently working on a series of police thrillers featuring his new character, Nate Duarte, a detective in the Sex Crimes Division of the Tucson Police Department.
