SarahJane Ford is a twenty-five-year-old author who has been writing for as long as she can remember – from short stories scrawled in jagged six-year-old’s handwriting through to her debut novel I Give You My Heartwhich was published last year.
I Give You My Heartis a contemporary romantic women’s fiction novel and was ajourney that began with an article SarahJane read about the awesome power of the human heart and what it can carry within its walls…even through transplant. This is a book inspired by love and the belief, though currently based on anecdotal evidence, that love and memories truly can live on. I Give You My Heart was written with the touches of love, loss and a little magic.
SarahJane was born in Scotland but grew up in the Cheshire countryside, which is home to her once more. Her father was born and raised near Derby (and returns every time the Rams play) and her grandfather still lives in Burton-Upon-Trent.
A marketing professional since finishing her formal education, SarahJane is delighted to be following her writing dream. She is a reader first and foremost so is really looking forward to being amongst fellow book lovers at the festival, and sharing her passion for the amazing power and impact of words.
