About Sally

Sally has lived on five continents and visited thirty-three countries, but she gives credit to Greece – and particularly a serene writers’ retreat named Limnisa on the Peloponnese Peninsula – for turning her into a writer. She completed a residency at Varuna, the Writers’ House in the Blue Mountains in 2018 and has published articles in Gulf News, Women’s Ink! and Brevity Blog. Sally’s story of her great-great-grandmother’s extraordinary life appears in the anthology Itchy Feet: Tales of Travel and Adventure. Her exploration of travel and grief is included in the Newcastle Short Story Award Anthology 2022.
