Sarah Goodwin

Sarah is a lifelong resident of rural Hertfordshire. She began to write while at school in the county and her love of its beautiful landscape led to a keen interest in foraging and pagan traditions. Living so close to the greenbelt has meant a lot to her and she has an emotional attachment to the woodlands and meadows routinely threatened by urban expansion. These interests are woven through her debut novel Stranded. A story also inspired by the isolation and uncertainty of lockdown, Stranded is about environmental and moral decline, survival, grief and witchcraft. 

Stranded: Eight strangers. One island. A secret you’d kill to keep. When eight people arrive on the beautiful but remote Buidseach Island, they are ready for the challenge of a lifetime: to live alone for one year.

Eighteen months later, a woman is found in an isolated fishing village. She’s desperate to explain what happened to her: how the group fractured and friends became enemies; how they did what they must to survive until the boat came to collect them; how things turned deadly when the boat didn’t come…

But first Maddy must come to terms with the devastating secret that left them stranded, and her own role in the events that saw eight arrive and only three leave.

Sarah’s second novel The Thirteenth Girl is due to be released on 23June 2022.
