Sarah Painter has worked as a freelance magazine journalist, blogger and editor for the last thirteen years, combining this 'career' with amateur child-wrangling (AKA motherhood).
She also writes books, and is represented by Agent Fabulous (AKA Sallyanne Sweeney at Watson, Little Ltd). Her debut novel, The Language of Spells, is out from Carina UK 30th May, 2013.
Sarah lives in rural Scotland with her children, husband, and two enormous cats. She drinks too much team, loves the work of Joss Whedon, and is the proud owner of a writing shed.
Gwen Harper left Pendleford thirteen years ago and hasn’t looked back. Until an inheritance throws her into the mystical world she thought she’d escaped. Confronted with her great-aunt’s legacy Gwen must finally face up to her past.
The magic she has long tried to suppress is back with a vengeance but gift or burden, for Gwen, it always spells trouble. She has to stay – she has nowhere else to go – but how can she find her place in the town that drove her out after branding her a witch…?
