Sarah Hammond was born and grew up in Lincolnshire. As a toddler, she wore out her copy of Beatrix Potter's The Tale of Peter Rabbit through enthusiastic overuse and she is just as passionate about books now as she was then.
For almost a decade, Sarah worked as a solicitor in the City. However, following a lifelong dream to write children's fiction, Sarah recently completed a masters degree in Writing for Young People at Bath Spa University.
The Night Sky in my Head is her debut teen novel, published by Oxford University Press.
Mine! is her debut picture book, published by Parragon Books Ltd.
