I wrote my first book, The History of Melton Mowbray (pub. WHSmith/Francis Frith) at 20. My university years were spent working and playing hard. I was an active member of four outdoor sports clubs, enjoyed the subsidised UK and world-wide travel that entailed and graduated with first class honours in English literature and language. I then launched the master plan: combining my favourite things (the outdoors, travel and writing) and thereby never having to do a day's work, ever. Words and work snowballed and I have spent the last five years enjoying being outdoors, loving travelling (UK and worldwide) and excitedly encouraging others to do the same by writing and illustrating magazine articles and guidebooks. My website is www.sarahstirling.com.
Favourite places: Wales, Somerset, The Peak District, Rutland, France, the Greek Islands, Australia, New Zealand.
