SD Neeve

Biography

Sarah’s love for writing began to blossom in Middle School. She found the written word both appealing and magical, where she could lose herself for hours in a book. An early reader, she took to her first love, poetry with youthful exuberance, and her fondness for the subject grew with the years.

Throughout her childhood and early adulthood, Sarah never lost sight of her one true passion, reading. As the years passed, stories became a new and exciting interest that overtook her yearning for writing poetry or drawing. However, those ideas remained dormant, but stayed a constant reminder during that time.

Not until 2010 that is, when she finally decided to begin the process of writing those ideas down.

At present, she has one completed book in its final edit, which she has been sharing on her blog ‘Inspire the Idea’. Also two other projects that are either awaiting completion, or are still in the early stages of drafting.

Sarah started her early life in Pakefield, England before her family moved to Norwich. The youngest of eight children (five of those boys), she spent her childhood acting out her role as ‘Tomboy’ with expertise, and preferred playing football and cricket rather than playing with dolls. She still resides in Norwich with her husband, son and family cat.

Smashwords Interview

When did you first start writing?
I first started writing when I was in junior school, but that was mostly poetry. I did manage to write a few short stories, and whilst at senior school, I wrote the script for a play for our group in drama class. So I suppose I caught the bug from a young age.
What is the greatest joy of writing for you?
For me, I'd say everything. I love creating the outline of a story (something, which I learned the hard way, was quite important), and getting that first tingle of excitement. Plotting the chapters is also good, well, for me anyway.
Next comes the actual writing, the time to let those ideas free. I welcome the solitude, the quietness of early morning when the house is still and I'm left all alone to write.
Lastly comes the scrub-and-cut stage, as I like to call it, the time to mutilate or add new segments before getting down to editing. Now though, I have a brilliant editor who does that part for me.
