Sara Barnard

Sara lives in Brighton and does all her best writing on trains. She loves books, book people and book things. She has been writing ever since she was too small to reach the “on” switch on the family Amstrad computer. She gets her love of words from her dad, who made sure she always had books to read and introduced her to the wonders of secondhand book shops at a young age.

Sara is trying to visit every country in Europe, and has managed to reach 13 with her best friend. She has also lived in Canada and worked in India.

Sara is inspired by what-ifs and people. She thinks sad books are good for the soul and happy books lift the heart. She hopes to write lots of books that do both. She is the author of Beautiful Broken Things, A Quiet Kind of Thunder, Goodbye Perfect for which she won the YA Book Prize 2019, and Fierce Fragile Hearts. She is also one of the seven authors of Floored, a collaborative novel published July 2018.
