Sarah Pearse lives by the sea in South Devon with her husband and two daughters. She studied English and Creative Writing at the University of Warwick and worked in Brand PR for a variety of household brands. After moving to Switzerland in her twenties, she spent every spare moment exploring the mountains in the Swiss Alpine town of Crans Montana, the dramatic setting that inspired her novel. Sarah has always been drawn to the dark and creepy - remote spaces and abandoned places - so when she read an article in a local Swiss magazine about the history of sanatoriums in the area, she knew she'd found the spark of the idea for her debut novel, The Sanatorium. Her short fiction has been published in a wide variety of magazines and has been shortlisted for several prizes.

Sarah Pearse recommends
I Would Die for You (2025)
Sandie Jones
"Sandie Jones is the queen of the twisty thriller."
Our Holiday (2024)
Louise Candlish
"A sharp, brilliantly observed novel that had me gasping at every twist and turn but also smiling at the intuitive skewering of the second home stereotypes. I loved every gripping page."
Trust Her (2024)
Flynn Berry
"Compulsively readable and beautifully written, Trust Her is another dazzling novel from Flynn Berry. Following Northern Irish sisters Tessa and Marion Daly as their past catches up with them, the story relentlessly ratchets up the tension, and I couldn't turn the pages fast enough. Berry effortlessly combines suspense with prose packed full of emotional depth in a human-centered story that resonates long after you finish reading."
