Sarah Maine is a writer whose first novel Bhalla Strand  was published by Freight Books, Glasgow in 2014 and is being re-launched by Freight in May 2016 as The House between Tides (and under the same title by Atria in North America, Allen and Unwin in Australia). Sarah now lives in York but grew up partly in Canada where much of her second novel (The Poacher 2017 Hodder and Stoughton UK, Atria USA) is set. Her work examines the power of landscape on characters and events, and the ever-present layering of the past. She is at Cove Park to work on her third Ullaness which is set on the west coast of Scotland.
