Sarah Rayne Book and Novel

Sarah Rayne - Author


After a convent education, which included writing plays for the Lower Third to perform, Sarah Rayne embarked on a variety of jobs, but – probably inevitably – returned again and again to writing. Her first novel appeared in 1982, and since then her books have also been published in America, Holland and Germany.

The daughter of an Irish comedy actor, she was for many years active in amateur theatre, and lists among her hobbies, theatre, history, music, and old houses – much of her inspiration comes from old buildings and their histories and atmospheres. To these interests, she adds ghosts and ghost stories, and – having grown up in the Sixties – good conversation around a well-stocked dinner table.

If you like Sarah Rayne you might also like to read books by Barbara Vine, Carol Smith and Mary Higgins Clark.
