Her parents were members of one of the few Strict Baptist chapels left in Essex. Being brought up in the chapel, she felt like she grew up in the time era of 1895. She spent her childhood amidst the Bible reading, Beethoven, the Victorian Hymns and the print of Pilgrim’s Progress. 

At the age of 8, when Sarah was searching for something to read, she found a white-jacketed book full of illustrations. It was the book, Jane Eyre

For most children of her age, the book would be complicated, but Sarah read it anyway. She would make her mother convert some words now and then but still felt enthralled. 

Sarah began to play truant at the age of 16 when she started to feel that she outgrew her teachers. She would instead go to the library to read rather than her school. Sarah grew up reading ancient, mythical, historical, and many other books. She probably gained more knowledge from novels than schools books.

As for her academic education, Sarah attended Anglia Ruskin University, where she studied English. Later, she completed her MA in Creative Writing and Ph.D. in Gothic and Creative Writing from Royal Holloway, University of London.

Coming from a strict Christian family, Sarah was never exposed to popular cultures of her time and didn’t own a TV as well. She never had boyfriends or went to gigs, and clubs like the rest of her age did.

Sarah mainly socialized by going to church, and that was where she met a handsome young man named Robert Perry at the age of 16.

Robert arrived late to the church with his parents that day. He was wearing a purple shirt without a tie; not wearing a tie to the church was a really big thing at the church she went to. Such behavior seemed reckless but full of joy to her. That was how Robert grabbed Sarah’s attention.

After a little while, the couple started dating. While dating, Sarah received a CD of Eighties music as her first gift from him.

And later, Sarah married Robert and shared her wedding vows with her life-partner when she was 20.

She has been together with her husband for about 18 years, and the couple is still going strong.
