About the Author

Sara's parents immigrated in 1956 from Yorkshire, England as 10-pound poms. Sara was born in St John of God Hospital in Subiaco and spent the first few months of her life in Cottesloe, before the family moved to Lesmurdie, in the Perth Hills. She went to Lesmurdie Primary School and later Kalamunda High School. As a child, Sara loved the bush around Lesmurdie and spent a lot of time in it on her own. The family then moved to Maida Vale to a rural setting. She never settled. After one year at WAIT (now Curtin University) studying language, literature, culture, journalism and history, Sara took off and travelled to Far North Queensland, where she lived in a rainforest. It was there that Sara had her first child, a bush baby she called Ayr. Returning to Western Australia, to Toodyay, Sara married and raised a family of five children. In 2006, she moved to the WA Goldfields where she worked in various roles, many of them working closely with the Aboriginal Community getting to know, at times, several generations of the same family. Together with Elvis Moody, an Indigenous Artist, Sara recently completed a book tour of Leonora, Laverton and Mount Margaret community schools, talking about her first book, 'The St John's Cross Spider'. The tour was well-received and they are looking forward to returning to the schools in 2021received 2021 with Sara's new book 'Where Wild Emus Roam'.
