An Australian-born girl wielding dual citizenships and a +5 charisma (her dexterity roll was shockingly low), Sarah grew up adoring Princess Zelda a lot more than she was supposed to.
She was propelled into the realm of fantasy fiction, honing her craft by writing convincing narratives about boys that she “had a crush on” in her youth. Her appreciation of vivid narratives extended to the interactive stories of video games (where she was considered a “Mario flukeartist”), and the sweeping accompaniment of instrumental music (every quest needs a soundtrack).
Endowed with a hero complex, she now rides around Brisbane on her beautiful Electra bicycle, Miss Darcy, looking for damsels to save.
Sarah is a music performance graduate from the Queensland Conservatorium of Music, majoring in flute performance and music education. Three days after graduation, she began her literary trek through the University of Queensland’s Writing, Editing, and Publishing program, and received her Master’s qualification in July 2010. One day she may drum up the courage and stamina to further her studies into a postgraduate research role on video game discourse. Maybe.
For now, Sarah enjoys writing about her appreciation for comics, commuter cycling, video games and creative writing. She also loves to talk about life as a geeky gal.
