Sarah Epstein

Sarah Epstein

Sarah Epstein spent her childhood drawing, daydreaming and cobbling together picture books at the kitchen table. By her teens she was also writing short stories and angsty poetry, and starting novels that never saw the light of day. After a design degree at university and a career in graphic design, Sarah reconnected with her desire to write children’s books soon after her kids were born. A writer, illustrator and designer, she grew up in suburban Sydney and now lives in Melbourne with her husband and two sons. She is passionate about YA, especially the thriller genre which is her favourite to read. Small Spaces is her first novel. | 

Sarah Epstein grew up in suburban Sydney and spent her childhood drawing, daydreaming and cobbling together picture books at the kitchen table. By her teens she was also writing short stories and angsty poetry, and starting novels that never saw the light of day. 

After earning a design degree at university, Sarah embarked on a career in graphic design. It was only after she’d had a baby that Sarah reconnected with her desire to write children’s books, and it took nearly five years’ worth of nap times to complete her first manuscript. Thankfully these days she writes much faster, and when she’s not busy drafting novels you can find her designing, illustrating, crafting, and occasionally sleeping in Melbourne where she lives with her husband and two young sons. 

Small Spaces is her first novel.
