Sarah Linley lives in Keighley, West Yorkshire and works as a Communications Manager for a housing charity in Bradford.
She spent two years backpacking around South-East Asia with her husband. Their travels inspired her debut novel, The Beach.
When she is not writing, she enjoys walking in the Dales with her dad and his dog.
The Beach (One More Chapter): ‘It was supposed to be the perfect trip. Four friends, fresh out of university, backpacking around Thailand. But among the sun, sea and sand, something went horribly wrong…
In the years since, Holly has tried hard to push memories of that terrible summer from her mind. Now a schoolteacher, she believes her life is finally coming together when she meets Tom and his adorable five-year-old son, Jack.
But then, Holly starts receiving anonymous messages, showing photos which Holly was sure she destroyed years ago. Someone clearly knows the truth about what really happened. The only question is, how far will they go to get revenge?’
