Sarah Beth James

sarah beth jamesSarah has been writing since she was a teenager – fan fictions, short stories, original work. In 2015 she started working with a great entertainment blog called thecinemarks.com when Bill (the Editor there) saw potential in her work. He guided her a great deal over the next few months, shocking Sarah when he made her Co Editor this winter.

Save Me is Sarah’s first published novel. Based loosely on her own personal life growing up, and that of gay/bisexual friends she has known. There will be a sequel in 2017 called Too Many Tears, where we will see the continuation of Jack and Nic’s story.

Sarah also has several other stories in the pipelines over the next 2 years.
