"A breathless energy imbues the strong plot, which alternates between Zoe’s tense family relationships and Ava’s claustrophobic captivity. Warburton delves deep into the psychological underpinnings of her believable characters in this highly entertaining domestic thriller."~Publishers Weekly

About Me

Sarah Warburton Author Novelist Photo by Kristna Rose Photography

I'm a writer, reader, and knitter (not necessarily in that order.) After earning a B. A. in Latin from the College of William and Mary, an M.A. in Classics from the University of Georgia and another from Brown University, I studied at the University of New Mexico with Sharon Oard Warner and Julie Shigekuni, at the Taos Writer’s Workshop with Pam Houston, and in Houston with Justin Cronin. 

I'm the author of the thrillers ONCE TWO SISTERS (10.2020, Crooked Lane Books) and YOU CAN NEVER TELL (8.2021, Crooked Lane Books).

I've been told that for a "basically happy person" I write very bleak prose.
