I was born in the U.K. and studied interior design and accounting before emigrating to Australia over 40 years ago as a single girl looking for adventure. Instead I found a home, married and brought up two children. I worked for many years in the community sector helping disadvantaged people and now I am relishing the freedom of retirement to enjoy life and get serious about writing. "Cicadas in Summer" is my first full length novel, written using knowedge gained throughout my career and set in the beautiful Redlands area of Brisbane's bayside. Sara Delaval is my pen name - a family name which I use to fulfill a promise made many years ago - but that's another story! I am currently working on my second novel.
