Sara is a number 1 bestselling author of TICKING OFF BREAST CANCER. Her second book is AFTER BREAST CANCER A RECOVERY HANDBOOK, published by Sheldon Press in April 2023. She lives in Hertfordshire with her husband of twenty years, their two children and a dog who likes to eat socks.


Sara was diagnosed with breast cancer at the age of forty-two. Not ever expecting to be diagnosed with breast cancer and having to deal with the impact that cancer can have on an already busy life (one involving a juggling motherhood, working and everything else that a forty-something year old woman has to fit in her life) Sara decided to use her experience to help others who were going through the same thing.


Towards the end of her treatment, Sara set up her website,, and wrote her bestselling debut book Ticking Off Breast Cancer. Ticking off Breast Cancer was a finalist for 'Best Non-Fiction' for The People's Book Prize.


With the book and the website, Sara has created something that will support and encourage others throughout their breast cancer treatment and beyond.


Sara works part-time in London as an insurance lawyer but now spends a lot of her time working in the breast cancer charity sector as a patient advocate. Her work includes heading up the Future Dreams breast cancer charity online support hub, contributing to professional text books, writing articles and speaking at events.
