Sarah Ward worked in community education for twenty years before returning to university to study for a PhD in Social Policy, which she is due to complete in 2018.

She began developing the ideas for Resurrection, Port Glasgow during the MLitt Creative Writing programme at the University of Glasgow, and has continued to write with support and feedback from G2 Writers Group and Skriva Writing School.

She has a family connection with Port Glasgow, where her grandparents lived, and where her grandfather worked in the shipyards as a plumber.

Sarah lives in Glasgow with her husband and three children.
