Sarah Leamy was the boring little sister who suddenly left her English life and became the broke nomadic wanderer and writer. She finally settled in New Mexico in her late twenties although she’s still taking extended road trips when she can. As the socially awkward and insecure Brit abroad, she lived first in Europe and then crossed the States and into Guatemala, performing, writing and working odd jobs as she explored new countries alone or with Daisy, her slightly grumpy Border Collie. Since then her stories, poems, essays and articles have been published in numerous online magazines, in newspapers, anthologies, and also in London, Madison, San Francisco and New Mexico. Her second novel won Best Fiction in the 2012 New Mexico/ Arizona Book Awards, and was a finalist with her third, Lucky Find. In 2016, When No One’s Looking won best gay fiction.
These days she’s become more known as the odd Englishwoman with the dogs and a cat called Stevie who lives in the mountains near Santa Fe, suddenly appearing with another book in hand. Or perhaps for driving a camper van for months at a time with the three critters looking out the back window?
