Welcome to the website of Sarah Ward, author of the crime series set in the Derbyshire Peak District.

My debut novel, In Bitter Chill, was described by the Daily Mail as a ‘tense, well-told story of loss and family secrets’. The second book in the series, A Deadly Thaw, is coming in September 2016.

I was a reader before I became a writer and at Crimepieces I review the crime novels that I’ve been reading. For my latest recommendations, please click on my blog tab. You’ll see a strong emphasis on Scandinavian crime fiction. You can also view events where I’ve be appearing and, of course, read about my books.

I can be also be followed on Twitter, Facebook and you can sign up to my newsletter here. If you’d like to give feedback or ask me a question please feel free to contact me via the form on my ‘about’ page.

Many thanks for visiting.
