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.
If you want a low-budget western about radioactive mutants on snowmobiles, or a psychological thriller defining our childhood sexual assualt epidemic, then take a dive into Sarah's feature length spec scripts.
When writing for television, Sarah eyes the 'Netflix' model, specific to hisotrical fiction. Intense study of Indigenous spirituality can come alive for modern viewers (see The Other War). Reworking the psychic divide between mysticism and Christianity can be a healing experience (see Sword In The Tree).
Sarah's shorts are often 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.
