Join us in the shop to welcome these two local published authors as they chat about the process of transferring scribbles into publication.

Sally Hart lives in Pudsey, with her husband and their two children. After working as a cardiac nurse for over twenty years, she decided to take a twelve-month career break and write her first novel ‘Out of Her Mind’. In August 2022, Sally entered a Twitter pitch competition run by the publishers Bloodhound Books and they offered her a contract after reading her novel.

A police detective hunts for the connection between a killer and a nightmare-plagued nurse, in this frightening psychological thriller . . . ICU nurse Sarah Knowles is suffering from nightmares and memory lapses. She finds a vase of roses on her kitchen table but has no recollection of buying them. And why doesn’t she remember moving her belongings around?

Before she can confide her worries to her friend Anne, Anne goes missing. Meanwhile, DCI Peter Graham is hunting a serial killer known as the Beautician, who is terrorizing the West Yorkshire town of Ledforth. A fingerprint links one of Sarah’s patients at the hospital to the latest murder. What no one realizes is that Sarah has a much more significant connection to the killer— and his preparations for their reunion are almost complete. . .

Jaye Sarasin once worked for the Royal Greenwich Observatory and hence acquired a love of astronomy and by extension science fiction. She taught English and Languages at High School, reads Ursula le Guin and John le Carre , lives in Farsley, Leeds, and loves shopping at Truman Books.

Jaye’s second book, Keepers of the Sun, set in a future Chile is described as ‘dystopia meets the ancient inca’. Should Allie risk her future to save a child thief from the police? In the sun-blasted, oxygen-starved world of a future Chile Allie’s decision leads to her becoming involved with the boy’s pregnant sister and a rebel group with a charismatic leader. The girl disappears and, suspicious of the clinic treating her, Allie follows her into a rebel village in the High Andes. But someone is performing grotesque genetic experiments and the rebels have their own agenda.
