Sarah graduated from Kingston University with a BA in Illustration in 2001. Her first book 'Five Little Fiends' won the Bronze Smarties Prize and the UKRA (United Kingdom Reading Award) award. It has been an international success, translated into eight languages. Since then she has written and illustrated seven more picture books with publishers Bloomsbury and Frances Lincoln.

Sarah is currently working on her first non fiction series of books with Templar, the first two titles Book of Things and Book of Colours are already released with two more books in the series coming next year.
