Sarah Pinborough

Sarah Pinborough was born in 1972 in Buckinghamshire, and now lives just a few miles away after a childhood spent travelling all over the world (her father, now retired, was a diplomat). When she was eight she packed her trunk and left the Middle East for a ten-year stretch in boarding school. The memories provide her with much material for her horror and supernatural thrillers…

I’m really enjoying it, it’s really well written.’ … More

Friday Reads: Mayhem

If you love a good historical thriller, which has a whiff of the supernatural about it, this is the perfect summer read for you.

As you would hope, the novel evokes London at its dank and grisly best, with the story interwoven with real newspaper … More

Kris Meic sent us this great review of Poison, the first of Sarah’s fairy tales, as part of our Geeks mailing earlier in the year, and as it turns out he has a mighty fine blog himself that you … More
