Sarah lives on Manitoulin Island, Ontario, Canada. Sarah has 8 features, 2 tv pilots + bible, and 4 shorts for you to peruse in her Stage32 'loglines' section.
Sarah's feature work includes high concept sci-fi, political adventure/drama, youth fantasy, and one psycholgical thriller. Themes of environmentalism, mysticism, and feminism tinge all her work.
When writing for television, Sarah's work so far is in historical fiction. THE OTHER WAR is set in the war of 1812 between 'Upper Canada', the USA, and the Indigenous nations caught in the middle. HOSPITALLER is set in 1190, an era of clashing power struggles between the papacy, the Holy German Roman Emperor, Kings, Queens and aspiring Lords, the Knightly Orders - Teutonic, Hospitaller and Templar - and the pagan spirituality of common folk.
Sarah's shorts are issues-based: teen fentanyl abuse, spousal assault, coping with a physical deformity, poverty and hunger. Sarah writes shorts for free if the idea sparks her fancy, please contact her with your requests.
