Sally-Anne grew up in a small village just outside Sheffield. Much to her parents’ disappointment, at 16 years old Sally-Anne left a promising career in the advertising department of the Derbyshire Times to pursue a performing arts course. This led to many jobs, few of which involved acting.
As a child she was a big fan of Hammer House and Tales of the Unexpected. Her lasting love of the darker stories is explored in her fortnightly Substack newsletter ‘Into The Shadows. Her writing has been published in Scriptwriter Magazine, Vegan Food & Living, the Daily Mail and contributed to Derek Pykett’s book ‘British Horror Film Locations.’ Her short film script ‘Freak Show’ was chosen by writer charity TAPS and led to a writing workshop in continuing drama series with ITV.
Sally-Anne’s first novel, The Clinic is a dark thriller set in an ex-asylum and published in October 2022 by Joffe Books. Her most recent psychological thriller, The Home, was published in October 2023.
