Yvonne Sanders


I'm addicted to writing. I've cut my writing teeth on my other lives as a mother and school teacher - plenty of writing fodder there! And on my other other life as an educational writer - mostly Science and Biology. I write adult and children's fiction. I've written a couple of novels, some children's stories and lots of short stories for adults.

Writing is my therapy! It makes me calm and happy; it forms me into a better person.

When you're not writing, how do you spend your time?
I have another life as mother and school teacher. Of course, I'm really just a writer in disguise then, because while I'm going through the motions of living out that other life, I'm secretly collecting characters and incubating stories from the antics of the world and the people in it!

  • Jane Austen Vs Dracula on May 28, 2021

    This light-hearted spoof of the backstory to Jane Austen's writing career and her unlikely encounter with Count Dracula will have you in stitches. At once fantastical and hilarious. Thank goodness for the likes of Darrell Pitt, who can send us on an incredible journey of restorative escapism.
