Saskia Sarginson

Saskia Sarginson

Saskia spent her childhood in a cottage in the middle of a Suffolk pine forest. Her family kept goats, ponies, hens, and cats, and Saskia and her two younger siblings had the freedom to roam the forest alone. This experience helped inspire her to write her best-selling debut novel, The Twins, which was a Richard and Judy pick 2013. Her other novels are: Without You, The Other Me, and The Stranger. Her books have been translated into 15 languages; she’s been shortlisted for Best Historical Read, 2015, and for the Leserpreis German Book Award, 2014. Her new novel, How It Ends, (The Wonderful in the US) has been short-listed for The East Anglian Prize for Literature 2019. She’s been a columnist for The Guardian, worked as an editor and journalist on women’s magazines, and as a script reader. She has a BA in English Literature from Cambridge University, and an MA in Creative Writing from Royal Holloway. Saskia lives with her partner, three dogs and two cats in London. Her four children - identical twin daughters and two sons - are now grown-up enough to have their own homes. When she’s not writing or reading, you’ll find her baking vegan cakes and then working off the calories by dancing tango or salsa. She finds her twice-daily dog walks useful space for dreaming up ideas for plots.
